China’s Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope, has discovered 84 new pulsars since its trial operation began in September 2016, Jiang Peng, FAST chief engineer.

FAST has discovered 84 new pulsars since its trial

A pulsars is a highly magnetized, rotating neutron star, which emits two beams of electromagnetic radiation.

Pulsar observation is an important task for Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), which can be used to confirm the existence of gravitational radiation and black holes and help solve many other major questions in physics.
