COSPAR Press Release: Rare Magnetar Identified (12 Dec 2013)
A new transient magnetar, 3XMM J186536.6+003317, pulsing in X-rays
every 11.56 s is the ninth of its class, It was identified during a COSPAR
Capacity Building Workshop for young researchers in developing countries. The
magnetar is likely part of a binary star system together with an
"anti-magnetar" (a young neutron star with a low magnetic field).

Glimpsing the Infrastructure of a Gamma-ray Burst Jet (04 Dec 2013)
A new study using observations from a novel instrument provides the best look to date at magnetic fields at the heart of gamma-ray bursts, the most energetic explosions in the universe. An international team of astronomers from Britain, Slovenia and Italy has glimpsed the infrastructure of a burst's high-speed jet.
