Gravity waves play with fast-spinning stars, study suggests

Scientists observed changes in the signals coming from fast-rotating stars called millisecond pulsars that could point to the existence of subtle space-time waves that vibrate throughout the universe.

Milliseconds pulsars are stellar remnants that spin hundreds of times a second, producing precise radio pulses that can act as a cosmic metronome. Scientists believe that ripples in space-time, called gravitational waves, can affect these signals as they travel through space. When an international team of researchers recently discovered a strange interruption of the pulse signals, they determined that this may have been a product of such an interaction.
