Massive stars live short lives and die violently. Their end products are energetic and represent extreme physical conditions. The most massive ones can produce black holes or pulsars (rapidly spinning neutron stars). The death of massive stars therefore provide a laboratory to test physics that we can not do on Earth.

In the thesis, the young pulsar PSR B054-69.3 and its wind nebula in the Large Magenallic cloud are discussed. Some comparisons are also made with its sibling, the Crab pulsar.
