The pressure that exists in the core of a neutron star is so dense and strong, scientists think it may be very similar to the conditions of the Big Bang.

13 Scientific Facts That Will Amaze You

The pressure that exists in the core of a neutron star is so dense and strong, scientists think it may be very similar to the conditions of the Big Bang.

Neutron stars are the densest and smallest stars known to exist in the universe; with a radius of only about 12–13 km (7 mi), they can have a mass of about twice that of the Sun.

Stars have fascinated us since the beginning of history. For eons, mankind has looked to the heavens and wondered at the stars in the sky. Ancient people believed they could see shapes among the stars.

Pulsar - A pulsar (pulsating star) is a highly magnetized, rotating neutron star that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation. Neutron stars are very dense, and have short, regular rotational periods. This produces a very precise interval, between pulses that range from roughly milliseconds to seconds for an individual pulsar.  Certain types of pulsars rival atomic clocks in their accuracy in keeping time.
