A wobbling magnetised star challenges the origin of repeating fast radio bursts

An international research team led by Gregory Desvignes from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn/DE has used the Effelsberg and Jodrell Bank radio telescopes to observe the precessing magnetar XTE J1810-197 — a highly magnetised and ultra-dense neutron star — shortly after its X-ray enhanced activity and radio reactivation. This precession damped [...]
