This paper discusses pictures taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the pulsar in the nearby Crab Nebula now attributed by astrophysics to the residue left by a supernova. This conclusion is rebutted by comparing the pulsar in the Crab Nebula with the twin jet collapsed matter object previously found near the recent supernova in the Large Cloud of Magellan. Also, the mass of the pulsar is so great a black hole should have been formed instead of a pulsar. Moreover, the magnetic action suggested to explain the non-polar jets ejected by the pulsar is rejected and the writer's vortex theory is used to provide a different explanation of pulsars and their jets as well as the waves of charged particles around the pulsar under consideration.
