studying neutron stars

What happens after the death of a star?

Patrick Motl, associate professor of physics and associate dean of sciences at Indiana University Kokomo, studies the death of stars and the super-dense objects that result, called neutron stars.

One thing to remember about neutron stars is, one teaspoon of its matter weighs more than all of humanity combined. People don’t really know much about the state of matter at such extreme conditions.
