A super-fast baby magnet noticed him screaming across the Milky Way



A fast-spinning, ultramagnetic, 500-year-old baby neutron star has been spotted chipping at unprecedented speeds across the Milky Way.

The flicker X-ray and radio waves of this giant baby – with the beautiful name J1818.0-1607 – would probably have first appeared in the sky when Nicolaus Copernicus, the Polish scientist who proposed the sun (and not The Earth) was the center of the universe, first looking up at the heavens.
