Please note this talk is on Monday

Pulsars (pulsating radio stars) are some of the most bizarre objects in the universe, with densities comparable to the density of the nucleus, huge electric and magnetic fields, strong gravitational forces and relativistic speeds. In this talk I will describe the main properties of these stars and show how studying them has extended our knowledge of physics.

Talk is free for members, and £2 for non-members.
