Researchers from Japan’s Institute of physics and chemistry have observed a new magnetic star named swift j1818.0-1607. Its discovery challenges our traditional understanding of magnetic stars and pulsars. Magnetostar is a subtype of pulsar, which is an extremely dense celestial body mainly composed of neutrons. Magnetars and some pulsars emit powerful X-rays, but scientists believe that the two mechanisms are not the same: magnetos’ X-rays are believed to be driven by extremely strong magnetic fields, while some pulsars are due to the rapid rotation of stars. < / P > < p > in this study, the researchers found that the pulsar has a pulse period of 1.36 seconds, which is the shortest observed magnetostar. Further studies show that it has a spin down characteristic, which means that it is driven by rotation to some extent; and it has a magnetic field of 2.7 × 1014 Gauss, which indicates that it is a young magnetic star. < / P > < p > this object has the characteristics of both magnetos and rotating pulsars. The researchers believe that this discovery may reveal a missing link between the two pulsars. Didi Qingju bicycle has entered 150 cities
