Powerful pulsating gamma rays emitted by a neutron star that rotates an incredible 707 times per second

A Black Widow's Pulsar and his little star companion, considered in their orbit. Strong radiation and the "wind" of the pulsar – a discharge of high-energy particles – heat the opposite side of the star strongly to temperatures twice as high as those of the solar surface. The pulsar gradually evaporates its partner, which fills the system with ionized gas …

Astronomers discover a massive neutron star that almost should not exist

An illustration of the pulsar and a nearby white star, which scientists used to help measure the pulsar's mass. NRAO / AUI / NSF                                                  Scientists say they've found a spinning neutron star, or pulsar that is so densely compacted, it might be right on the limit of what's possible. It could exist precariously at the tipping point where any …

The most massive neutron star ever discovered reaches the limits of physics

This is the artistic impression that the pulse of a massive neutron star is delayed by the transition of a white dwarf star between the neutron star and the earth. Because of this delay, astronomers have discovered the most massive neutron star yet. The European Southern Observatory's VISTA telescope captured a stunning image of the Magellanic Cloud, one of our …

Neutron stars break and forge gold into an explosive Kilonova

Artistic representation of two colliding neutron stars. NASA / Swift / Dana Berry The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detects gravitational waves by looking at the collisions of black holes. In addition, collisions of other cosmic bodies are investigated, for example, in 2017, when the first observed fusion of two neutron stars was detected. Now a team of astronomers …

When Neutron Stars Collide: Scientists Spot Kilonova's Explosion from Epic 2016 Crash

Scientists recently spotted a gold-and-platinum factory in space, the remains of a massive collision of stellar corpses. kilonova "or an epic explosion that probably happened when two very dense stars (called neutron stars ) slammed into each other. The kilonova's power comes from colliding superdense neutron stars, where bizarre physics reigns. These objects are the remnants of large stars – …

Scientists discovered waves from a black hole that swallowed a neutron star

Nearly a billion years ago, a black hole seems to have eaten a dead star – "like Pac-Man," said Susan Scott, a physicist at the Australian National University. Scott's team believes that the waves in the spacetime of this event, also known as gravitational waves, have just reached Earth. Such disturbances were first theorized by Albert Einstein, who in 1915 …
