Abstract

A DECREASE of 196 ns in the period of pulsar PSR 0833–45 has recently been observed1,2; I suggest that this decrease results from the addition of mass to the pulsar. A remnant of the supernova explosion forming the pulsar may not have escaped the gravitational field and may now have fallen back on the pulsar.
