Episode 29: Zombies of the Cosmos

This week we learn all about neutron stars and pulsars, which can be thought of as the “corpses” of dead giant stars. We are firstly joined by Prof Matthew Bailes who tells us all about using the MeerKAT telescope to study pulsars. We then hear from award-winning science journalist Katia Moskvitch about her new book “Neutron stars: The Quest to Understand the Zombies of the Cosmos.”
