Caption: Pulsar, computer artwork. A pulsar (upper right), a rapidly rotating neutron star, is the collapsed super-dense core of a massive star that has blown off its outer layers in a supernova. It casts out narrow beams of energy (gamma radiation, coloured rays) as it rotates. The beams are confined by extremely strong magnetic fields (not seen) that emanate from the star.
