The Crab Nebula One of the most studied objects in the night sky is the Crab nebula, the remains of a supernova explosion observed by the Chinese in 1054. In 1968 it was discovered that a pulsar-a rapidly rotating neutron star that emits a pulse of radio waves with each revolution-lies near the center of the Crab nebula. The period of this pulsar is 33 ms. What is the angular speed (in rad/s) of the Crab nebula pulsar?
What is 2PI/33ms ?
