Most of the ~600 known pulsars are single and located in the disk of our Galaxy. There is circumstantial evidence that the pulsars in this majority are created in supernova (SN) explosions, by the collapse of the cores of massive stars (initial mass M_i ≳ M_(cr) ≃ 8 M_⊙). One is created roughly every 100 y in the Galaxy.
