Astronomers discover evidence for most powerful pulsar in distant Milky Way

As the supernova’s explosive debris shell expands over the course of a few decades, it becomes less dense and eventually thin enough to allow radio waves to escape from within. This allowed observations by the VLA Sky Survey to detect bright radio emission created as the fast-spinning neutron star’s powerful magnetic field sweeps through surrounding …
