The 2010 UK - Canada Rutherford Lecture is presented by Prof Vicky Kaspi FRS, FRSC, Professor of Physics, Physics Department of the McGill University, Montreal.
Though thousands of light years away, neutron stars can act as precise cosmic beacons, a cosmic gift that sheds light on some of the most interesting problems in modern science. In this talk I will introduce these bizarre objects, and show how astronomers are using them to study topics which range from the origins of the Universe to the very nature of matter.
