Chandra X-ray Observatory Celebrates 15th Anniversary! New Image: In 1054 AD, Chinese astronomers and others around the world noticed a new bright object in the sky. This “new star” was, in fact, the supernova explosion that created what is now called the Crab Nebula. At the center of the Crab Nebula is an extremely dense, rapidly rotating neutron star left behind by the explosion. The neutron star, also known as a pulsar, is spewing out a blizzard of high-energy particles, producing the expanding X-ray nebula seen by Chandra. In this new image, lower-energy X-rays from Chandra are red, medium energy X-rays are green, and the highest-energy X-rays are blue.

@nasa can I ask the question of the small differences between pulsar neutron stars and magnetar neutron stars, because supposedly now they have discovered a mix of the two and have decided that neutron start their neutron life as pulsars and end in magnetar a or vice versa?
