A team of Chinese astronomers has conducted a study aimed at inspecting formation scenarios for the millisecond pulsar PSR J1946+3417.

They found that the pulsar was most likely formed as a result of a phase transition.

Pulsars are highly magnetized, rotating neutron stars emitting a beam of electromagnetic radiation.

The most rapidly rotating pulsars, with rotation periods below 30 milliseconds, are known as millisecond pulsars (MSPs).

This animation illustrates how an old pulsar in a binary system can be reactivated -- and sped up to a millisecond spin -- by accreting gas from its companion star.
