The universe could comprise extraordinarily dense and unique hypothetical cosmic objects often called unusual quark stars. Whereas astrophysicists proceed to debate quark stars’ existence, a workforce of physicists has discovered that the remnant of a neutron star merger noticed in 2019 has simply the appropriate mass to be considered one of these unusual quark stars.

When stars die, their cores compress to such unbelievable levels that they change into solely new sorts of objects. For instance, when the solar lastly sparkles out, it can go away behind a white dwarf, a planet-size ball of extremely compressed carbon and oxygen atoms. When even bigger stars explode in cataclysmic explosions known as supernovas, they go away behind neutron stars. These extremely dense objects are just a few miles throughout however can weigh a number of instances the mass of the solar. As their identify suggests, they’re made virtually solely of pure neutrons, making them basically kilometers-wide atomic nuclei.
