The Mystery of Neutron Stars Heats Up

Until now, scientists were pretty sure they knew how the surface of a neutron star – a super dense star that forms when a large star explodes and its core collapses into itself – can heat itself up. However, research by a team of scientists led by a Michigan State University physicist has researchers rethinking that. Scientists had long thought that nuclear reactions within the crust, the…
