Ever since their discovery three decades ago, neutron stars have fascinated astronomers. They have extreme properties in almost all respects: they are the densest objects in the Universe, the most rapidly rotating, and the best astronomical laboratory for condensed-matter physics. To this, Kouveliotou et al. (page 235 of this issue) add direct evidence of magnetic fields strong enough to perturb the very structure of the vacuum.
