Pulsars are rapidly rotating, strongly magnetised neutron stars, emitting flashes of non-thermal radiation covering up to eighteen decades of energy in the electromagnetic spectrum. They are powerful tools used in physics, astronomy and even cosmology. I’ll review their observational status and prospects for the future. I’ll then present current models of high-energy processes as well as new theoretical developments in modeling pulsars and their wind zones.
