‘Of the eight MRPs found, the time it takes for one rotation through these stars is between half and four days a day,’ said Bernoulli Das. The results of this study were published in the Journal of Astrophysics. However, locating MRPs is a challenging task. The radio vibrations they emit are only visible at selected times of the day and year. These are easy to spot at low radio frequencies.
UGMRT has a unique feature that no other radio telescope in the world currently has. Scientists are conducting observations in the 400 Mhz-850 MHz bandwidth on specific days from mid-2019 based on the actual state verified at the optical frequency. The Carl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) area in the United States was also used for observation. These stars were found in the Milky Way 150 light-years from Earth.
The previously mentioned theory is now experimentally proven to be small explosions that occur at specific locations around the magnetic spheres of these stars. Das and Poonam claim that radio emissions from MRPs convey electron cyclotron measurements. He said the explosions would play a role in transporting gaseous material around such stars.
“One such star was discovered in 2000. Of the 15 MRPs discovered so far, 11 were discovered using GMRT … there are many more such stars that were once considered rare,” said Professor Chandra.
