With a sizable array of known millisecond pulsars spread over the sky, astronomers will attempt to measure correlated timing changes among these clocks in order to make the first ever direct detection of the gravitational wave background of the Universe.
This newly detected system puts the revving-up theory of millisecond pulsars on surer footing, says Deepto Chakrabarty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the discoverers of the X-ray emission reported in 1998.
Ultimately, the white dwarf dumps its material onto the elderly neutron star, recycling the oldster into a fresh, young millisecond pulsar.
Manchester notes that 47 Tucanae's dense core made it a likely place to find millisecond pulsars, which are believed to be formed by gravitational capture of a neutron star by a neighboring star.
However, whereas conventional theory suggests that the number of millisecond pulsars and X-ray sources should be approximately equal, Narayan's population estimates indicate 100 times more pulsars than X-ray sources.
In previous studies, Potter has shown that the human brain can correctly identify images seen for as little as 100 milliseconds.
Multivariate analysis determined that patients whose QTc interval exceeded 530 milliseconds were more than twice as likely to experience one of these events as were those with shorter intervals.
The company said that the peak mean effect of 5-10 milliseconds was similar to that seen with sildenafil, which has not been shown to increase cardiovascular events when compared with an age matched general population, in phase I-III studies of vardenafil, there was no evidence of drug-induced torsades de pointes and related cardiovascular events.
Compared to an average packet loss of 10% and response time of 560 milliseconds overall for Asia, India had a zero packet loss and a response time of 453 milliseconds.
6 milliseconds, so we are talking about an extremely short period of time,'' said John Gipson at Goddard.
When shadows matched the objects, children without autism were faster at figuring out what objects were, taking roughly 310 milliseconds on average compared with 340 milliseconds if shadows did not match objects and roughly 330 milliseconds if no shadows were present.
With Calient's SSM software, these configurations can now restore network traffic, end-to-end, around a failure within 50 milliseconds and offer protection equivalent to the more expensive SONET ring configuration.
