  Andrew Lyne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lyne is Langworthy Professor of Physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester, as well as director of the Jodrell Bank Observatory and leader of its Pulsar Group.
Professor Lyne was educated at the Portsmouth Grammar school, and the University of Cambridge (natural sciences), continuing to the University of Manchester for a PhD in Radio Astronomy.
Lyne's colleague Richard Manchester called the PSR J0737-3039 system a "fantastic natural laboratory" for studying specialized effects of the General Theory of Relativity.

What Lyne and his colleagues at the University of Manchester in England actually observed when they looked at the pulsar was not a visible body orbiting the star remnant--that would have been impossible to see at such a great distance.
An editorial commenting on the admission says that Lyne and Bailes should take pride in the directness of their acknowledgment this week of their mistake, calling their conduct a model of how these things should be done.
Lyne is also planning an all-sky survey of pulsars--and their possible planets--throughout the heavens.

Lyne admits the painting is of his daughter but doesn’t know who sent it to Johnny.
Johnny later gets a vision of Chloe leaving the house and Lyne pleading for her to stay to ”finish their work.” Studying the vision, Johnny sees she was calling an art student named Dylan, who Lyne says is a drug dealer and a lousy artist.
He meets with Chloe who reveals Lyne asked her to move on but is considering teaching but she is still grateful she was able to help Lyne paint again with her “inspiration.” As he touches her tea cup he gets a vision of her success in Italy and gives her a little career advice.

 ASP: The Search for Planets Around Other Stars
These pulses are normally very regular, but last July, British astronomer Andrew Lyne and colleagues found that the radio pulses from one pulsar had a puzzling variation.
Lyne thought the radio pulse variations were Doppler shifts as the pulsar, tugged by an unseen companion about ten times the mass of the Earth, orbited a center of mass.
But in January 1992, Lyne reported that his team had not properly removed the effects of the Earth's motion around the Sun from their analysis, and, when the calculations were redone correctly, the pulse variations disappeared.

Andrew Lyne's relationship with Julia and Chloe was so distastefully sexual, even if they didn't have sex; what sort of man goes to "Eyes Wide Shut" parties with a girl he treats like a daughter?
Poor, pathetic, homicidal Nora wasn't pretty enough or interesting enough to be her father's muse, and didn't interest me as a character at all.
I'm a lot more interested in our four main characters than Andrew Lyne and his twisted "family," and there was nothing for them here.

 SPACE.com -- British scientists were surprised when they discovered a pulsar wobbling like a top
Lyne, Ingrid Stairs and Setnam Shemar, all of Jodrell Bank, published the discovery in the August 3 issue of the journal Nature.
Lyne, Stairs and Shemar detected the wobble by studying the 30 observations a year of PSR B1828-11 over 13 years with the observatorys 250-foot (76-meter) Lovell radio telescope.
Lyne said the bulge must be tiny, with the pulsar departing from being a perfect sphere by only a 250th of an inch over 12 miles (0.1 millimeters in 20 kilometers).

They have shown that the compact object orbiting the 23-millisecond pulsar PSR J0737-3039A with a period of just 2.4 hours is not only, as suspected, another neutron star but is also a detectable pulsar, PSR J0737-3039B, that is rotating once every 2.8 seconds.
Professor Andrew Lyne of the University of Manchester points out that "While experiments on one pulsar in such an extreme system as this are exciting enough, the discovery of two pulsars orbiting one another opens up new precision tests of general relativity and the probing of pulsar magnetospheres."
The same team previously reported [Nature 4th December 2003], the discovery of pulsar A in a close binary system which is rapidly losing energy by gravitational radiation.

On Thursday March 22nd, its Director, Professor Andrew Lyne, initiated an 18 month programme of work by ceremonially beginning to chisell off one of the old surface panels.
The new, higher precision, surface coupled with a sophisticated control system to be installed later in the year, will result in an expansion of the usable frequency range by a factor of four so allowing a wide range of new science to be carried out.
As Professor Lyne pointed out "the upgrade to the Lovell Telescope will extend the capabilities and operational life of the telescope, keeping it at the forefront of astronomical research with as much promise and potential as when it was first built".

 PhysicsWeb - First double pulsar comes into view
The double pulsar story started when Andrew Lyne of the Jodrell Bank Observatory at Manchester University and co-workers discovered pulsar J0737-3039A with the 64-metre Parkes radio telescope in December 2003.
Now, new measurements with the Parkes telescope and the 76-metre Lovell radio telescope at Jodrell Bank have revealed that this neutron star is also a pulsar, with a period of 2.77 seconds.
Moreover, by studying what happens to the radiation from the millisecond pulsar as it passes behind its companion it will be possible to probe the outer atmosphere, or magnetosphere, of this second pulsar in detail.

The powerful new "multibeam" receiver was built as a joint venture between engineers at the Australia Telescope National Facility and the University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Observatory, funded by the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council.
The receiver gives the telescope 13 beams capable of scanning the sky simultaneously and, as Professor Andrew Lyne of the University of Manchester explained, "It's like having over a dozen giant radio telescopes operating at once".
As a result, the system requires 13 sets of sophisticated data acquisition systems, one for each beam, which were largely developed and built by the UK group.

PSR 1829-10's planet, proposed by Andrew Lyne of University of Manchester on July 24, 1991, was retracted in 1992.
A combination of an inaccurate position for the pulsar and a timing model approximating the Earth's orbit about the Sun with a circle yielded processed data resembling that which would have been expected from a pulsar planet with an orbital period of half a year.

A collaboration of European research teams (The Pulsar Science in Europe - PULSE - collaboration) led by Professor Andrew Lyne of the University of Manchester, have been awarded the European Commission's prestigious 2005 Descartes Prize for Research.
Ten years on, the team are world leaders and their research achievements cover a wide field, not only in studying the extreme physics of the pulsars themselves, but also in using them as probes of the galaxy through which their signals pass.
Professor Lyne underlines the importance of the collaboration: "Our work increases mankind's knowledge of some of the fundamental laws that govern the universe.

I may not know much about art, but I liked the idea of the craven art patron who furnishes egomaniacal artist Andrew Lyne with daughters the way a pimp supplies a wealthy john with hookers.
The sudden recharging of Lyne's muse was directly attributed to the sudden discovery of Lyne's beautiful, long-lost daughter Chloe.
She filled the void left by Julia, Lyne's previous beautiful, long-lost daughter, who was founded along a nearby shoreline with her skull bashed in.

PLANETS AROUND PULSARS COME AND GO Just as Alexander Wolszcan of Cornell was announcing the discovery of planets around the pulsar PSR 1257+12, Andrew G. Lyne of the University of Manchester was retracting his claim (made in July 1991) for a planet around pulsar PSR 1829-10.
"Our embarrassment is unbounded," Lyne had to admit to a sympathetic audience at the AAS meeting.
The researchers believe that similar effects may also be responsible for the periodic "glitches" in the rotation of pulsars, the largest known superfluid objects in the universe.
