Fermi Finds Hints of Starquakes in Magnetar Burst 'Storm' (22 Oct 2014)
Fermi detected a rapid-fire "storm"
of high-energy blasts from the highly magnetized neutron star (magnetar)
SGR J1550-5418 on Jan. 22, 2009. Now Huppenkothen
et al. 2014, ApJ, 787, 128 have discovered underlying
signals related to seismic waves rippling throughout the magnetar.
Such signals were first identified during the fadeout of rare giant flares
produced by magnetars.
