Electron-eating neon causes star to collapse  PHYS.ORG · 4 days
An international team of researchers has found that neon inside a certain massive star can consume the electrons in the core, a process called electron capture, which causes the star to collapse into a neutron star... more
Electron-eating neon causes star to collapse  nanowerk · 6 days
Neon inside a certain star core can eat so many electrons, it causes the star to collapse into a neutron star and produce a supernova. more
Ticking cosmic clocks reveal the evolution of stars over millions of years  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
Pulsars, a type of rotating neutron star, are well-known as incredibly stable astrophysical clocks. Their regularity, used to measure their radio pulses, has led... more
Merger between two stars led to blue supergiant, iconic supernova  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
A supernova in a nearby galaxy may have originated from an explosion of a blue supergiant formed by the merger of two stars, simulations by RIKEN astrophysicists suggest.... more
