Telescope Pair Turn Speed Camera In World-First Measurement

the super-fast speeds of a neutron star's powerful jets have been recorded by CSIRO's Australia Telescope Compact Array and the European Space Agency's Integral observatory

The research has been published in Nature.

Neutron stars, like black holes, have huge gravitational pulls. When pulling matter from a nearby star, their extreme environments cause the occasional thermonuclear explosion and constant jets of matter shooting into space. Not much is known about these jets, including their composition and speed.
