The fastest moving pulsar may have been found about 30,000 light-years from Earth. This object is known as IGR J1104-6103 and may be racing away from a supernova remnant. If confirmed, this would challenge theorists to create models that explain such super speeds out of supernova explosions. A trio of telescopes - Chandra, XMM-Newton, and the Parkes radio telescope - was used in this finding.
