.12.21 Newly Discovered Magnetar Making Noise

As our technology to detect abnormalities in space becomes greater, so do the discoveries. Last year a new star was discovered and titled Swift J1818.0-1607. This star is unusual because it possesses the qualities found in a Magnatar which is in a very rare class of its own. This rare gem begins as a neutron star which fails to go supernova and instead collapses, creating an incredibly dense core. This star however is more than a one trick pony and also produces pulsating beams of radiation which you can learn more about from author Peter Dockrill writing for Space.com HERE.
