The first extrasolar system confirmed and one of the only planetary systems known around a pulsar. Has three rocky planets that orbit closer than Venus. The innermost has a Moon-like mass, while the next two out are Super Earths. May also have an outer "comet" sized body, the first sub-planetary object detected and possibly a representative of a mini "kuiper belt" at asteroid belt like distance.
