Extreme Physics

Last Wednesday, Dr. Ben Stappers (University of Manchester, Jodrell Bank) gave a very interesting talk on pulsars, and the physics we can do with them, such as checking the predictions from Einstein's theory of relativity, and searching for gravitational waves. He answered our questions patiently and helped us all to understand better these mysterious objects.
