Hard-core astrophysics: Massive neutron star hints at how matter behaves at its densest

from Scientific American

An extremely dense celestial object thousands of light-years away is serving as a natural nuclear physics experiment, providing clues to processes that cannot be reproduced in the lab. Astrophysicists look to neutron stars, extraordinarily compact remnants of massive stars, to find out how matter behaves at the highest densities that it can withstand. When a star collapses to a neutron star, what remains is an object that squeezes more mass than is contained in the entire solar system into a sphere the diameter of a midsize city. more
