Millisecond pulsars spin far more rapidly than expected for a collapsed star. The best chance to study these neutron stars is to find a black widow system where the pulsar has evaporated and eaten much of its companion star. The Keck I telescope was just able to capture spectra of one such companion, allowing astronomers to weigh its pulsar. It's the heaviest found to date, and perhaps near the upper limit for a neutron star.

Thanks to huge computational and mathematical effort, scientists produced the first simulation ever of merging binary neutron stars in theories beyond general relativity that reproduce a dark-energy like behavior on cosmological scales. This allows the comparison of Einstein's theory and modified versions of it, and, with sufficiently accurate data, may solve the dark energy mystery.

Author(s): William G. Newton, Sarah Cantu, Shuxi Wang, Amber Stinson, Mark Alexander Kaltenborn, and Jirina Rikovska StoneNuclear pasta is an exotic form of nuclear matter that occurs in the crust of neutron stars below saturation density. Various exotic nuclear structures with cylindrical, planar, and more complicated geometries evolve from the Coulomb lattice of nuclei immersed in a fluid of neutrons. Such structures in the crust should not only affect how a neutron star cools and rotates but also the height of the “mountains” that the crust can sustain—potentially detectable as persistent sources of gravitational waves. By performing a large set of quantum calculations the authors show that the energy landscape of nuclear pasta consists of multiple local minima with very similar energies.

19:03 Physics.Aps.org Research News: Sizing Up the Most Massive Neutron Star

Author(s): Matteo RiniA satellite experiment has revealed that the heaviest known neutron star is unexpectedly large, which suggests that the matter in the star’s inner core is less “squeezable” than some models predict.  [Physics 14, 64] Published Thu Apr 29, 2021

18:17 ScienceDaily.com Black hole-neutron star collisions may help settle dispute over Universe's expansion

A new study simulated 25,000 scenarios of black holes and neutron stars colliding, aiming to see how many would likely be detected by instruments on Earth in the mid- to late-2020s. The researchers found that, by 2030, instruments on Earth could sense ripples in space-time caused by up to 3,000 such collisions, and that for around 100 of these events, telescopes would also see accompanying explosions of light.

Studying the violent collisions of black holes and neutron stars may soon provide a new measurement of the Universe's expansion rate, helping to resolve a long-standing dispute, suggests a new simulation study led by researchers at UCL (University College London).

Nuclear physicists have made a new, highly accurate measurement of the thickness of the neutron 'skin' that encompasses the lead nucleus in experiments. The result, which revealed a neutron skin thickness of .28 millionths of a nanometer, has important implications for the structure and size of neutron stars.

Nuclear physicists have made a new, highly accurate measurement of the thickness of the neutron "skin" that encompasses the lead nucleus in experiments conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility and just published in Physical Review Letters. The result, which revealed a neutron skin thickness of .28 millionths of a nanometer, has important implications for the structure and size of neutron stars.
