Amazing to know that even while understanding the forces at work, that this pulsar doesn't spin itself apart at that speed of rotation! I wonder what
this one "sounds" like compared to the rest. At that speed, it must be like listening to a very high pitched mosquito. Although I must say, Vela is
my favorite, she's very hypnotic to listen to.
I run Einstein@Home via the BOINC program, which analyzes data from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), Aricebo, and the
Fermi gamma-ray satellite to search for pulsars. While it's not crucial for my participation in the data crunching, I'd love it if my computers were
someday one of the ones that discovered an unknown pulsar
