Keep your eyes on the stars in this brick red skater skirt based on the incoming radio waves from the first documented pulsar, Pulsar CP1919.
Originally discovered by astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell in 1967, a pulsar is a rapidly rotating neutron star that emits beams of radiation in regular cadence. The perceptible “pulses” are caused when the beam of radiation falls in and house of Earth’s line of sight due to a misalignment of the star’s rotational axis and its magnetic axis. The effect is similar to that of a lighthouse spinning in the night.
Jocelyn Bell Burnell was a phD student at the Cambridge Cavendish Laboratory at the time of the discovery. Although she was not recognized for her contribution when the discovery was award the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1974, she has continued to be a driving force in astrophysics and a champion for women and underrepresented ethnic minorities in physics.
