Neutron Star Simulations Unveil Explosive X-ray Flares in 3D Model

Stony Brook, New York – Computer simulations are shedding new light on the chaotic behavior of cannibal neutron stars when they absorb material from a nearby companion star. The resulting thermonuclear burning of this accumulated material can trigger explosive events that emit X-radiation across the Universe. Scientists are delving into the evolution and spread of … Read more
