Probing Extreme Matter Through Observations Of Neutron Stars
Huntsville AL (SPX) Mar 11, 2013
Neutron stars, the ultra-dense cores left behind after massive stars collapse, contain the densest matter known in the universe outside of a black hole. New results from Chandra and other X-ray telescopes have provided one of the most reliable determinations yet of the relation between the radius of a neutron star and its mass. These results constrain how nuclear matter - protons and neutrons, and their constituent quarks - interact under the extreme conditions found in neutron stars. Thre ... read more
