Nice.

Appears that the 1987 supernova in the LMC is still a mite too young to show up as a gamma pulsar through the nebula.

Appears to pick them up between the ages of the 1987 pulsar and the crab pulsar. Chances of a young millisecond gamma pulsar vaunted in the article are fairly low as interaction with the gas in the SNR will slow it down before it emerges from the nebula shroud.

Have a nice day: Ag
