Then again, known magnetars
also produce powerful bursts of X-rays and gamma rays, which have not (yet) been observed in the case of FRB 121102.
It could also mean that the magnetar
powering it had a slower spin that other magnetars
A certain class of neutron stars, dubbed magnetars
have magnetic fields so powerful that they would make our Earth bound magnets seem like kiddie toys.
are considered to be magnetically-powered NSs, which emit X-rays by consuming their magnetic energy given as
More likely sources are radio eruptions from various types of neutron stars, such as pulsars and magnetars
If it really is a magnetar

Washington, May 15 ( ANI ): Researchers have now solved the mystery regarding the formation of magnetars
In this sense, the study of compact objects such as black holes, neutron stars, magnetars
These kinematical fields are transferring in space not like a ripple on the river, but like the water itself in the stream (it is worth recalling that specific stars named magnetars
have a magnetic field with the density of water).

Such a growth of the magnetic field also explains the phenomenon of magnetars
