Abstract:

Spinning freely on their axes, and emitting radio noise detectableover interstellar distances, pulsars make extraordinarily stable natural clocks. Detailed comparisons of "pulsar time" with the time kept by atomic clocks on Earth have opened the way for texts of gravity under conditions much more relatistic than found anywhere within the solar system. Among other results, these experiments have established the existance, quadrupolar nature, and propagation speed of gravitational waves.
