In particular, it can aid scientists by allowing them to better determine the state of neutron matter
, or how much it can be compressed at extremely high densities.
As the neutron stars are devoured," he added, "they spin up and eject cold neutron matter
, which decompresses, heats up and make these elements.
The technique of neutron matter
wave interferometry is capable of measuring b for solids, liquids, or gases with a relative uncertainty [less than or equal to][10.
But the gravitational pressure at the center of such a collapsed star may be large enough to drive neutron matter
into strange matter.
