Scientist Finds 2-in-1 Burster: Pulsar Goes Off Twice Each Orbit

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Marshall Space Flight Center recently announced the discovery of GROJ2058+42, an accreting X-ray pulsar with no visible component. The discovery was made by MSFC scientist Colleen Wilson while she was reviewing data obtained from the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE). The data showed that J2058+42 experiences two gamma ray bursts each orbit instead of the typical one burst.
