Recently, astronomers with Curtin University note of International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research came across an object, called “Ultra-long-period Magnetar”.
Objects turning on and off in the Universe aren’t new to astronomers. Astronomers call such objects as “transients”. There are two kinds of transients:
What is magnetar?
Magnetar is a type of neutron star, having an extremely powerful magnetic field. Magnetic-field decay powers the emission of high-energy electromagnetic radiation, specifically gamma rays and X-rays. The theory on these objects was proposed in 1992 by Christopher Thompson and Robert Duncan. The theory was later developed by Bohdan Paczynski. The theory explained a burst of gamma rays from Large Magellanic Cloud. A fast radio burst (FRB) was detected from a magnetar in 2020.
