Situated on the far edge of the Perseus arm and 700 LYs below the galactic plane, this prominent pulsar with its beautiful blue/green ejecta cloud was one of very few pulsars to be identified optically. Since the introduction of new FSD technology it has become a hotbed of scientific study, and also tourism due to its colourful dust clouds.
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 was not by the body who awarded the Nobel Prize.
