The Vela Pulsar is a radio, optical, X-ray- and gamma-emitting pulsar associated with the Vela Supernova Remnant in the constellation of Vela. The spin of 11.195 times per second (i.e. a period of 89.33 milliseconds) was the shortest known at the time of discovery.
The pulsar was discovered by astronomers at the University of Sydney in 1968, and was the direct evidence that supernovae form neutron stars. It was also studied in 2015 by a NASA balloon launched from Alice Springs, Australia. Perhaps most unusually, the emissions of Vela and the pulsar PSR B0329+54 were converted into audible sound by French composer Gérard Grisey and used in the piece 'Le noir de l'étoile'.
The Vela Pulsar is in binary pair with a B-class star and also is found with a number of class V gas giants.
