High Energy Stereoscopic System detects its first pulsar

The High Energy Stereoscopic System telescope in Namibia has detected gamma rays of only 30 Giga electron volts (GeV) from the Vela pulsar. This is the first pulsar to be detected by HESS and the second – after Crab in 2011- to be spotted by ground-based gamma ray telescopes.
