Fr.: se reproduire périodiquement, revenir   

To occur again, as an event, experience, etc.

From L. recurrere "to return, run back," → re- + currere "to run," → current.

recycled pulsar
  پولسار ِ بازچرخ‌شده   
pulsâr-e bâzcarx šodé

Fr.: pulsar recyclé   

A → pulsar of abnormally low magnetic field and short period. The short period suggests that the pulasr is young, while the low field suggests a very old pulsar. According to theoretical models, a pulsar at some point in its evolution stops functioning as a pulsar. If it resides in a binary system (→ binary pulsar), its magnetic field decays in the interval when the companion evolves and fills its → Roche lobe. The dead pulsar is eventually spun up to life when → mass transfer from the companion begins. The pulsar gains → angular momentum from the infalling gas and increases its spin rate as more gas falls onto it. → Millisecond pulsars that spin hundreds of times per second are thought to be the result of such a transfer (see, e.g., G. Srinivasan, 2010, New Astronomy Reviews 54, 93, and references therein).

recycle; → pulsar.

red clump
  گوده‌ی ِ سرخ   
gude-ye sorx

Fr.: grumeau rouge   

A concentration, on the → horizontal branch, of → red giant stars that roughly have the same intrinsic brightness. These core → helium burning stars are the metal rich equivalents of the better known → horizontal branch stars. Theoretical models predict that their absolute luminosity only weakly depends on their age and chemical composition.

red; → clump.
