NASA Chandra X-Ray just posted an image of the slowest pulsar and it is fascinating

The Chandra X-ray Observatory, previously known as the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility, is a Flagship-class space telescope launched aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-93 by NASA on July 23, 1999.

On Tuesday, the observatory posted this breathtaking picture.

They posted it with the caption: “Pulsars are roughly 20 kilometers in diameter. The bright source on the right-hand side of this image is pulsar SXP 1062 and it rotates surprisingly slowly — about once every 18 minutes. What’s the fastest pulsar known? That’s PSR J1748-2446ad and it rotates 716 times per second!⁣”

With over 21k likes, people are fascinated by how the pulsar looks like a rose in a garden. One of the users wrote, “That looks like a rose in the middle? Amazing.” While another user commented, “Vibing like jellyfishes.” For some, NASA’s latest post was “Fascinating information.”
