Jocelyn Bell Burnell (b. 1943) discovered neutron stars and pulsars when she was a graduate student.
Neutron stars are one of the possible endings for stars— they are incredibly dense (for perspective: 1 tsp. of neutron star would be a billion tonnes on Earth), and can be created when a star’s remnants collapse in on themselves following a supernova.
When neutron stars rotate, they are called pulsars. Because of this rotation, they appear to give out “pulses”
