Description

Learn about the basic (and somewhat bizarre) properties of neutron stars with this poster, exclusively from Astronomy magazine.

A few decades ago, astronomers thought they understood neutron stars fairly well. But it turns out the bulk of these exotic stars are rather peculiar. There are a few basic — albeit bizarre — properties all neutron stars have in common, including rapid rotation and packing about a Sun’s worth of mass into a sphere no wider than Chicago. Discover how things get even stranger when you explore the whole neutron star zoo with this poster.
