With the assistance of the China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST), scientists of The National Astronomical Observatories of China (NAOC) have made a series of breakthroughs. So far they have discovered 201 new pulsars.
Pulsars, or fast-spinning neutron stars, originate from the imploded cores of massive dying stars through supernova explosion, which is an ideal laboratory for studying the laws of physics in the extreme environment of the universe. China's FAST is the world's largest filled-aperture and most sensitive radio telescope to explore pulsars.
