The Godsheart was a pulsar—a rapidly rotating neutron star—that was located within the Hutt Space region of the galaxy. The star lay off The Dead Road hyperlane. The pulsar was considered sacred by members of the sentient Hutt species, with some of them believing the star was connected to their species' destiny. For millennia in their ancient history, they made divinations that were based on the Godsheart's changing flashes. The Hutts also believed that the pulsar led them from their destroyed homeworld of Varl to their new home planet, Nal Hutta. Scientists and technicians of the Sakiyan species used a facility near the Godsheart to enrich the element graxitium.
