The unusual conditions  detection

of the first exoplanet

The first ever

 exoplanets were discovered 30 years ago around a rapidly rotating star, called a pulsar.

Astronomers have

 revealed that these planets may be incredibly rare

The processes that

 cause planets to form, and survive, around pulsars are currently unknown.

Over the last 50

 years has revealed that this first detected exoplanet system may be extraordinarily uncommon:

Pulsars are a type of

 neutron star, the densest stars in the universe, born during powerful explosions at the end of a typical star's life.

"[Pulsars] produce

 signals which sweep the Earth every time they rotate, similarly to a cosmic lighthouse,"

"These signals can

 then be picked up by radio telescopes and turned into a lot of amazing science."
