The Crab Pulsar at the heart of the Crab Nebula was one of the first pulsars that mankind ever discovered, back in the 20th century, by Jocelyn Bell Burnell (who had also discovered the LGM-1 pulsar a year earlier). Though her contribution was recognised by her peers, it wasn't this discovery that earned her the Nobel Prize.
Although the nebula that surrounds it is small it is one of the most beautiful and intriguing, so it is no surprise that people would want to set up home here. The Crab Operations Syndicate have made this system their home and it boasts stunning views of the nebula as well as a safe place to rest. Though make sure you ask for somewhere to stay nicely, as the station crew are said to be somewhat short tempered.
