A neutron star is the collapsed core of a giant star which before collapse had a total mass of between 10 and 29 solar happylifekennel.comn stars are the smallest and densest stars, excluding black holes, hypothetical white holes, quark stars and strange stars. Neutron stars have a radius on the order of 10 kilometres ( mi) and a mass of about solar masses. Another great book from Raymond L.

Neutron Stars Like white dwarfs, neutron stars are strongly degenerate compact objects of roughly one solar mass. But whereas white dwarfs are supported against gravity by the zero-point motion of electrons (electron degeneracy pressure), neutron stars, as the name suggests, consist mostly of neutrons. Neutron stars are city-size stellar objects with a mass about times that of the sun. Born from the explosive death of another, larger stars, these tiny objects pack quite a punch. Mar 16,  · Neutron stars are formed when a massive star runs out of fuel and collapses. The very central region of the star – the core – collapses, crushing together every proton and electron into a neutron. If the core of the collapsing star is between about 1 and 3 solar masses, these newly-created neutrons can stop the collapse, leaving behind a neutron star.
