What Is Inside a Neutron Star? | Laura Fabbietti
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 stars that should theoretically be too heavy to exist, actually do exist. The more we search for answers, the more questions arise. Laura’s job and pursuit is to tackle these numerous strange puzzles and to find out what's inside neutron stars. Luckily she is passionate about exploring strange things!
