Headline: Hewish's Model Pulsar for Teaching
Summary: Antony Hewish and Jocelyn Bell discovered pulsars (a new kind of star) in 1967, and he used this model to teach people about them. The orange ball at the centre signifies a neutron star, the curved wires show magnetic field lines, the foil tubes beams of radiation from the neutron star. The first version of this model was driven by a gramophone motor.
