ABSTRACT
Taylor, Joseph Hooton, Jr. (1941-) is an American astrophysicist and radio astronomer acclaimed for discovering the first binary pulsar, a system of two collapsed stars that emit tremendous energy as they rotate rapidly around one another. Taylor's work in this area, done in collaboration with American physicist Russell Alan Hulse, gave the first true indications of gravitational waves as predicted by Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. In 1993, Taylor and Hulse jointly received the Nobel Prize in physics for their discoveries.
