We discuss some of the similarities and differences between p-wave pairing in 3He and the 3P2 neutron superfluid that is believed to exist in the interiors of neutron stars. The structure of vortices in the 3P2 neutron superfluid is particularly interesting and is relevant to the astrophysics of pulsars.
