Fast And Highly Magnetic Baby Magnetar Discovered


Magnetars are neutron stars that exhibit ultra-strong magnetic fields, according to the Swinburne University of Technology.


Discovery of the Youngest and Most Magnetic Magnetar Astronomers are used to studying celestial bodies and the astrological phenomenon of things and events that happened millions or even billions of years ago.


The young object was first spotted on March 12, 2020, by NASA”s Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory after releasing a massive burst of X-rays.


Observation and studies by the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton and NASA’s NuSTAR Telescope reveal more physical characteristics of the young neutron star.


Nanda Rea, a researcher from the Institute of Space Sciences in Barcelona, says, “This object is showing us an earlier time in a magnetar’s life that we’ve ever seen before, very shortly after its formation.”


Nevertheless, discovering the highly magnetic baby neutron star that spins faster than most magnetars, the Swift J1818.0-1607, is vital in understanding the origins of the universe.
