They showed that it was losing energy through gravitational radiation at the rate predicted by physicist Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, and they won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1993 for their discovery. The first binary pulsar discovered was the double-neutronstar binary PSR B1913+16, consisting of a radio pulsar in orbit around an unobserved second neutron star . Abstract: We report the discovery of the binary millisecond pulsar J0514-4002A, which is the first known pulsar in the globular cluster NGC 1851 and the first pulsar discovered using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT). Binary pulsars arise when a neutron star is formed in a binary system.If the system remains bound after the supernova explosion, there exists (for a short time) a normal pulsar in an eccentric orbit around a main sequence star (the secondary).
