Where are Lone Starr and Barf when you need'em? Would that those two (fictional) interstellar handymen-for-hire were real, space agencies like Switzerland's own, could outsource the tricky and costly intergalactic housekeeping that's fast becoming a high-priority. Instead, the famously neutral country is investing 10 million Swiss francs (about $10.8 million USD) into the production of a new breed of satellites dedicated to the collection and destruction of orbital debris. The project, dubbed CleanSpace One, will tackle one of two Swiss-borne, celestial objects -- the SwissCube or Tiasat -- for its initial mission, slated for some time within the next three to five years.
The Crab Nebula , of special interest to scientists for years, is what remains after a supernova exploded close to a thousand years ago, and the pulsar is what was left over; a very dense neutron star that spins at thirty times per second. Because the pulsar appears to pulse, hence it’s name, scientists have assumed that the high energy emissions from the nebula came directly from it, especially since the energy comes in bursts that come at the same rate as the pulses. But recent research has shown that what appears to be a pulse from the pulsar is actually more than that. The pulsar actually generates a continues beam of radiation that appears to pulse only when that beam heads our way.
