Sally Cooper: Spinder: A Dating App for Pulsars

Sally is a Pulsar Hunter at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics. She received her PhD in Radio Astronomy at the University of Manchester in 2017 and continues to research into searching for pulsars using the next generation of radio telescopes, like the Square Kilometre Array.

In the modern world of dating, many of us turn to apps to find our perfect partner but imagine what it’s like when you’re an ageing star. Pulsars are dead spinning stars that often grow up completely isolated and lonely. Introducing Spinder: a dating app for pulsars! Sally Cooper took our bluedot audience on a tour of the Galaxy and to see what starry companions might be compatible. Maybe it’ll end as an explosive supernova or a dance of love in an eternal orbit around each other.
