On this day in 1967 – November 28th – the first pulsar was observed by Dr Jocelyn Bell Burnell and Dr Antony Hewish at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory, Cambridge, England.

A pulsar is a rapidly rotating neutron star, but at the time no one knew this. A neutron star was still a theoretical construct whose existence wasn't accepted by many astronomers.
