sciencehabit writes: In a cosmic coup, astronomers have found a celestial beacon known as a pulsar in orbit with not one, but two other stars.

"It's a wonderful laboratory that nature has given us," says Paulo Freire, a radio astronomer at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, who was not involved in the work. "It's almost made to order."
