NEUTRAL STARS

Stars whose mass is 1.5-3 times greater than that of the Sun will not be able to stop their compression at the stage of a white dwarf at the end of their lives. Powerful gravitational forces will squeeze them to such a density at which a “neutralization” of the substance takes place: the interaction of electrons with protons will lead to the fact that almost the entire mass of the star will be enclosed in neutrons. A neutron star is formed. The most massive stars can form into neutron stars after they explode like supernovae.
The concept of neutron stars is not new: the first assumption about the possibility of their existence was made by the talented astronomers Fritz Zwicky and Walter Baarde of California in 1934. (A little earlier in 1932, the possibility of the existence of neutron stars was predicted by the famous Soviet scientists L.D. Continue reading
