Quoth the press release:
"About three times a second, a 10,000-year-old stellar corpse sweeps a beam of gamma-rays toward Earth. Discovered by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, the object, called a pulsar, is the first one known that only 'blinks' in gamma rays."
We can found no scientific discipline, nor a healthy profession on the
technical mistakes of the Department of Defense and IBM.
