    Do you have any other apps in progress? perhaps ExoGalaxy explorer? I wanna looks at some pulsars!
    There are a few pulsars in Exoplanet, they just aren't animated currently, but it is planned.

    Do a name search for "PSR".

    PSR 1257 was actually the first system discovered with planets.

    I just checked appworldstats, and it's at #80 overall

    Just want to thank you Neil for bringing this to the PB. I chortled in delight when I discovered my first binary star system!

    Well yeah that includes all the phone apps too, which you will easily be on when bb10 phones come out.

    Those binary systems are hard work. I had to read scientific papers to get the raw stats for them, particularly the cataclysmic binaries.

    A cataclysmic binary is usually a neutron star of some kind (smaller than Earth, but a similar mass as our star), and a "more regular" star, like a red dwarf, which is much larger than it's companion, but with a much smaller mass. They orbit each other really closely, and the neutron star's gravity will "suck" matter from it's companion causing huge radiation bursts, hence the cataclysm. I hope to animate these one day too, but it'll be a bit of work.
