Stars have fascinated us since the beginning of history. For eons, mankind has looked to the heavens and wondered at the stars in the sky. Ancient people believed they could see shapes among the stars.
Pulsar - A pulsar (pulsating star) is a highly magnetized, rotating neutron star that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation. Neutron stars are very dense, and have short, regular rotational periods. This produces a very precise interval, between pulses that range from roughly milliseconds to seconds for an individual pulsar. Certain types of pulsars rival atomic clocks in their accuracy in keeping time.
A look at all the different ways a star can die—from neutron star collisions to ordinary supernovae, and everything in between. http://futurism.com/images/the-futurism-guide-to-cosmic-explosions-infographic/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=Futurism&utm_content=The%20Futurism%20Guide%20To%20Cosmic%20Explosions%20%5BINFOGRAPHIC%5D
