TEDxTUM 2017 • Topics: Activism, Art, Community, Culture, Fashion, Global issues, Law
What do the fashion designer Tom Ford, the singer Adele, the country of Romania and a lawyer have in common?

When stars collapse in a supernova, what is left is either a black hole or a neutron star. We don’t know what’s inside a neutron star, and so far, we have no way of looking inside one. Physics shows that curious things like strange quarks, which make up hyperons and are energetically unfavorable, and neutron […]
