Astronomers May Have Got It Wrong About Neutron Stars
Scientists may have got it all wrong about how pulsars are born when a dying star explodes as a supernova. Contrary to current theories a Japanese-American satellite has found that pulsars that emit X-rays in supernova remnants outnumber those pulsars that emit radio waves. (1998-09-30)

Superfast Jets From Expoding Stars Could Explain Cosmic Speed Freaks
Gamma-ray bursts may be produced by the debris expelled from a supernova in a hyperfast jet, according to an astronomer in New Jersey. His theory would also explain why some pulsars are moving at speeds ten times faster than ordinary stars. (1998-09-16)

Robotic Telescope Sheds Light On Cosmic Microwave Background
For the past nine months, astronomers have been imaging the southern heavens in hydrogen-alpha light every night while keeping their day jobs, and without losing any sleep. Thanks to a new robotic telescope installed at Cerro Tololo Inter- American Observatory in Chile, the tedium of sky mapping is handled autonomously. (1998-09-04)

Strongest Stellar Magnetic Field Yet Observed Confirms Existence Of 'Magnetars'
A neutron star located 40,000 light years from Earth is generating the most intense magnetic field yet observed in the Universe, according to an international team of astronomers led by scientists at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. (1998-05-20)

Distant Exploding Stars Foretell Fate Of The Universe
New studies of exploding stars in the farthest reaches of deep space indicate that the universe will expand forever, according to findings of the Supernova Cosmology Project, an international team of astrophysicists based at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. (1998-01-08)

Discovery Of Supernova Remnants May Shed Light On Birth Of Stars
New observations reveal that a previously known supernova remnant in the Large Magellanic Cloud is, in fact, two colliding supernova remnants, a team of researchers from the University of Illinois reports. (1997-02-11)
