Neutron Stars: The ‘Death’ of a Death Star
Introduction: Neutron stars are dense, compact masses of subatomic particles (called ‘fermions’) compressed by great gravitational forces (Reisenegger 1). They are classified into three groups: the radio pulsars, which are rotating neutron stars that are predictable pulsators of radio waves due to its fast (Landau n. p.; Reisenegger 2) although sometimes slow (Fuller, et al. 1) rotation; magnetars, which neutron stars with the strongest magnetic fields in the universe and violently burst high-energy X-ray and gamma rays (Landau n. p.); nonrotating binary neutron stars, which are emitters of x-rays (Reisenegger 3); and PSR ...
