Pulsars J0737-3039

Summary:Fictional representation of two very REAL pulsars.
Description:This small add-on is a representation of two real pulsars located at about 1800 LY from our Sun and moving at a fast rate around their common barycenter (2 hours 27 min). They are called PSR 0737-3039. Since their discovery in 2004, they became famous among astronomers and astrophysicists, because of their ultra-relativistic behavior. This add-on is made from the recent data given to Cham by one of the discoverers (Micheal Kramer). Read Cham's installation instructions in his Readme.txt file.

Simply copy the PSR J0737-3039 directory to your Celestia\extras directory. See Cham's Readme.txt file too.

Very nice models which give a good idea on the dimensions of pulsars and how pulsars may look like. home page
