Oh Boy! The Youngest Identified Pulsar Is Splendid

Oh Boy! The Youngest Identified Pulsar Is SplendidNASA is at the peak of success owing to the thousands of discoveries taking place in space. The space bodies and objects being studied are quite old but that is not the case when it comes to Kes 75. The ultra-dense chunk of the star is named pulsar which the youngest one known to date in the Milky Way galaxy.

The new star is located at a mere distance of about 19,000 light years from Earth. The pulsar’s view is worth a glimpse owing to its beautiful appearance.  This neutron star called pulsar as its name speaks out is known to pulse when observed. The explosion of stars in the supernova leaves behind the neutron stars which are now being observed and studied by the researchers. These space bodies have some of the most bizarre characteristics such as emitting loads of energy when spinning at a faster rate. The ray of radiation brushing off our location tends to give a view as though the star is pulsing.  These neutron stars including Kes 75 are currently being spotted by NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory since 2000 and this technology gives a high-quality image and review of the objects observed in the deep space. The images have helped study the changes taking place in pulsar over time. The high and low energy X-rays help differentiate pulsar wind nebula and pulsar body clearly along with the debris resulting from the explosion. Chandra X-Ray Observatory of NASA had entered the safe mode due to system malfunction and is now back on track to make even more new discoveries.

As per the Astronomer Edwin Hubble and researchers from the University of Chicago, the first neutron star collision helped accurately measure the Hubble constant in 5−10 Years which in turn calculates the size and the age of the universe. The cosmic microwave background and cosmic distance ladder help calculate the universe’s expansion measurement.
