PSR B1257+12 astrometry: new distance estimate

Post by Lazarus on 3rd November 2012, 7:33 am

VLBI astrometry of two millisecond pulsars
http://arxiv.org/abs/1211.0111

Updated distance estimate of 710+43-38 parsecs. This suggests the X-ray efficiency of the pulsar is comparable to that of other millisecond pulsars and not anomalously low as had previously been suggested.
