P574 - Young Pulsar Timing: Probing the Physics of Pulsars and Neutron Stars

Also known as: P574

Brief description NASA launched Fermi, a new gamma-ray satellite, in 2008. It aims to detect several hundred gamma-ray pulsars (only 5 were known before the launch), but they need radio telescopes to tell them when and from where the pulses from each pulsar arrive. The Parkes telescope will perform this task and, at the same time, extract lots of other cool pulsar science from the data. So far results have been fascinating with more than 200 new gamma-ray pulsars discovered and findings on planets, precession, and glitches uncovered!
