PSR J1709-4429 is one of the so-called EGRET Six pulsars. Studied by the Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory between 1991 and 2002, these six were the first pulsars known to emit high-energy gamma rays (above 100 MeV). This was early evidence that pulsars are the best sources of high-energy gamma rays, and an important milestone in early 21st century astronomy.
The system also contains a black hole and a number of T-Tauri stars. With an estimated age of 38 million years, it seems possible the T-Tauri stars were formed out of one or more supernova explosions which created the pulsar and black hole.
