The object that scientists studied is moving at a speed exceeding the speed of the Earth's rotation around the Sun by 20 times.

Scientists have discovered a unique space object that moves at an incredible speed

< p> Scientists have studied a pulsating neutron star moving at a speed of about 2.25 million kilometers per hour. The object has the designation G292.0+1.8.

Information about the new study was published on the Cornell University website.

Note that there is a black hole in the Milky Way called Sgr A that is spinning at 86 million kilometers per hour. It is the fastest rotating object in our galaxy.

As for the new neutron pulsar, then researchers used x-rays to study it again. This supernova remnant lies about 20,000 light-years from our planet.

Scientists have studied images of supernova remnants taken in 2006 and 2016 and used data from the Gaia device. It turned out that the object is moving 30 percent faster than previously thought.
