neutron stars neutron star
The collapsed core of a massive star remaining after a supernova explosion. Usually, the core will have a mass of 1.4 times that of the Sun and a diameter of about 10 miles. Because matter is compressed so tightly, negatively charged electrons and positively charged protons are forced together. The resulting star consists of a core of superfluid neutrons and superconducting protons encased by a solid crystalline crust.
