The Neutron Stars Zoo : Zooming in and out to address their diversity, evolution and supernova progenitors
|Date||15 September 2021|
Neutron stars are among the most fascinating and intriguing objects in the Universe. Despite their discovery over five decades ago, their impact keeps growing; these engines have been, for example, recently linked to mysterious cosmic phenomena including Kilonovae and possibly Fast Radio Bursts.
I will highlight the growing diversity of neutron stars, revealed thanks to X-ray and radio observations, and the path we have been following towards unification of their different classes. I will show how probing their wind nebulae and hosting supernova remnants helps address their physical properties, evolution and supernova progenitors while driving the science case for future astrophysics missions.
