Episode 225: Neutron Stars' Crispy Shells

Play Jun 25•4:19

Neutron stars are the remnants of dead stars that have collapsed into small objects with incredible density. Their crusts could be 10 billion times stronger than steel. Forces from within the star crack the crust during "star quakes," events similar to earthquakes, and blast powerful gamma rays into space. Space.com on neutron star crusts. National Geographic on neutron star crusts.
