Pulsars were discovered by Jocelyn Bell during her PhD research in 1967. Tommy Gold suggested these radio signals are generated by rapidly spinning neutron stars and was proved correct when a pulsar was identified in the Crab Nebula, which is the remnant of a supernova seen in 1054. The original signal detected by Bell has become a cultural icon since being used as the cover art for an album by rock band Joy Division.
