If Fermi continues to find gamma-ray-only pulsars at such a high rate, it could indicate that the galaxy has as many gamma-ray pulsars as radio pulsars, says Caltech's Shri Kulkarni.
The Fermi result opens up the exciting possibility of constraining the earliest period of cosmic star formation, thus setting the stage for NASA's James Webb Space Telescope," Volker Bromm from the University of Texas, Austin, who commented on the findings, said.
