Crab Pulsar emits light at highest energies ever detected in a pulsar system, scientists report

An international collaboration of scientists has detected the highest energy gamma rays ever observed from a pulsar, a highly magnetized and rapidly spinning neutron star. The Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System experiment measured gamma rays coming from the Crab Pulsar at such large energies that they cannot be explained by the current scientific models of how pulsars behave.
