a pulsar is a star that spins very fast and cannot be seen but produces regular radio signals; the closest pulsar is 280 light years away in the constellation of Cetus; a pulsar is a rotating neutron star that sends out pulses of electromagnetic radiation at regular intervals in seconds and fractions of them, except for a pulsar known as PRR-J2144-3933, which emits every 8.5 seconds. A pulsar forms when huge supernova explosions generate highly compact neutron star cores, which are about 6-12 kilometers in diameter and spin faster as they collapse. Some pulsars rotate at an amazingly 600 times a second. Were it not for the design of gravity, pulsars would blow apart; the pulsar's magnetic field, which is 1 million times stronger than Earth's and its high velocity (speed) rotation, combine to accelerate the electron and this acceleration leads to the emission of radio waves in a narrow beam which pans across space like a light rotating in a lighthouse does on Earth, where each time the beam sweeps across Earth, astronomers can detect the radio waves.

Mathematics: the product, which is the number obtained by multiplying two or more numbers together, of the multiplication of a number by itself; i.e., 4 is the second power of 2 (2x2 {2 to the second power, written 22}) and 32 is the fifth power of 2 (2 to the 5th power or 25 {2x2x2x2x2=32}); it is cumbersome to write a billion and easier to write 109. Raising to a power is simply multiplying a number by itself as many times as you wish and indicating it by the power. It also works negatively, by using division; for example 1/100 would be written 10-2, that is, 10 to the minus 2 {10÷10=1 [1/100th}]), the tens used two times in the negative way to arrive at the result of 1
