    Glitching Pulsars, the sequel we have all been waiting for!

    7:30 pmQueen's Domain Clubrooms & Streaming

    REAST - June Presentation - Glitching Pulsars, the sequel we have all been waiting for!

    Just after the discovery of pulsars by Jocelyn Bell in the late 60s, we have known about pulsars glitching. For 50 years astronomers have been trying to catch a glitch live with a large radio telescope. All failed.
    Until in 2018 an unknown Tasmanian did what no one else in the world  had. And it got him published in the world’s most prestigious journal. 
    What is a glitch? What is a pulsar? And what happened that made Nature publish his paper?
    Dr Jim Palfreyman will present the sequel to his 2012 REAST talk. And like Godfather 2 and The Empire Strikes Back, it will be better than the original.
    See you at the Queen's Domain Clubrooms on 5 June 2024 from 7:30pm. Presentation will be live and streamed via the REAST YouTube Channel.
