We present results from X-ray and radio observations of the region surrounding PSR J0855-4644. PSR J0855-4644 is a nearby, fast spinning, and energetic radio pulsar in the south-eastern rim of the supernova remnant RX J0852.0-4622. X-ray observations with XMM Newton have shown an arcmin scale extended emission, the pulsar wind nebula (PWN), around the X-ray counterpart of the pulsar. Recent...   More >
