Chameleon Star Baffles Astronomers


Well.  They think they're so smart, it's about time something had them stumped.

I think it's karma.

The scientists identified a pulsar that is able to dramatically change the way in which it shines. In just a few seconds, the star can quiet its radio waves while at the same time it makes its X-ray emissions much brighter.

So...pulsars are sentient? Or do they just possess a modicum of autonomy? The article wasn't clear on that. Personally, I welcome our new pulsar overlords.

Wonder if there's something orbiting it in a tight elliptical orbit--and sloughing off matter to the pulsar on the closest arc of orbit?

An incomplete Dyson sphere in orbit around the star?

Could explain the shift in frequencies if it's redshifting/blueshifting as it moves.

not saying it was pulsar overlords, but it was pulsar overlords

Pulsar Overlords sound like a good...pr0n group name? Are there pr0n groups? If not, there should be. Can't waste this name on a band.

I always like to see things like this. Things are not as they seem, even if you claim to know everything about them. This one bugs me Standard Candle.

Has it got one planet and a clump of big diamond asteroids orbiting it?

You could say the stars orbit....comes and goes.  It comes and goes.
