Also known as PSR J1846-0258, this is a 14.07 solar mass pulsar at the center of supernova remnant Kes-75. This pulsar is believed to be of a subcategory called a magnetar, having extremely powerful magnetic fields which cause powerful radiation bursts. They are widely believed to be the source of the so-called 'soft gamma repeater' (SGR), an astronomical object which emits large bursts of gamma-rays and X-rays at irregular intervals. PSR J1846-0258 is a 326-ms pulsar; it emits roughly three pulses per second.
The magnetar shares a binary orbit with another neutron star of 1.3 solar masses, and an F-type star. Several sub-stellar dwarves (Y, L, T) and smaller bodies are also present.
