Neutron stars are some of the most mysterious and fascinating objects in the universe, and they have been studied extensively by astronomers and physicists. Neutron stars are incredibly dense and can be as small as 8 miles in diameter but contain more mass than the Sun. They are formed when a massive star runs out of fuel and collapses in on itself, leaving behind a core of densely packed neutrons. Neutron stars are extremely hot and spin rapidly, emitting powerful beams of radiation that can be detected from Earth. Here you can find the latest news, articles, and videos about neutron stars and their incredible properties.
Astronomers have detected the first gamma-ray eclipses from a "spider" star system, in which a superdense rapidly rotating neutron star called a pulsar is feeding on a stellar companion. The
