Product Description

A magnetar is a type of neutron star with an extremely powerful magnetic field and well known as the most dangerous star in the universe.  There magnetic field is a quadrillion times more than that of planet earth.

What makes them so dangerous is that they experience powerful starquakes, similar to an earthquake here.  But when it happens, it releases a blast of radiation that can be seen clear across the galaxy.  One magnetar about 50,000 light years away, had one of these starquakes releasing more energy than the sun gives off in 100,000 years in a tenth of a second.

They were first theorized in 1992 but the first recorded burst of gamma rays thought to have been from a magnetar had been detected on March 5, 1979.  As of 2013, there are 21 know magnetars discovered to date.
