Neutron stars are one of the most extreme and violent things in the universe. Giant atomic nuclei, only a few kilometers in diameter but as massive as stars. And they owe their existence to the death of something majestic.

I have a question, how do we know what is inside neutron stars and how do we know that this happens if scientists never actually saw it... I doubt that humanity has cut open a star so is there like some cool tech that astronomers use?

I are confused They said the elements in the sun's core fuse in this order hydrogen, helium, carbon, neon, oxygen, silicon, iron. But if you look at a periodic table Neon has an atomic number 10 while Oxygen has 8 and Carbon has 6. How can Neon fuse to Oxygen when it has a lower atomic number?

Neon burning produces Magnesium by addition of an alpha particle. This is the primary pathway. But energetic photons can split neon into oxygen and an alpha particle - that's called photodisintegration. The sun will never get to that stage though because its not massive enough and the core won't get hot enough.

Magic. In reality it's a complicated business that a few sentences on here can't explain. You can't see inside a neutron star but you can pin down certain internal properties by observation of its rotations rate and especially changes in that rate.

Imagine if the nuclear pasta could form complex self-replicating structures. There could be life inside neutron stars. Nuclear pasta that works in ways similar to amino acid chains in our bodies. Imagine intelligent life composed of interacting nucleons instead of molecules. Advanced civilizations blinded by the brightness of the star they live in, completely unaware of the universe outside. And even if they became aware of the outside universe, they would have no way to travel outside their star, since their bodies and any technology they have built would require so enormous temperatures and pressures to maintain, they would dissipate and freeze in an instant in the vacuum of space. As nuclear reactions are so high-energy and thus happen very fast, they could experience equivalent of human lifetime in a blink of an eye.

5:00 I imagine that there could be intellectual creatures made of strange matter like quark gluon plasma that is made of fundamental particles that we know of today, if there can be any stable harmony of such kind of matter. Yeah it is crazy but why not? We are all made of matters like water, complex carbon structures which are as crazy/lucky as neutron stars in the universe. Maybe neutron stars are more frequent than creatures like us in the universe.

If we ever get to a point where we can build dyson spheres or other type 2/3 civilization technology, I really hope we get to create nidavellir. A forge powered by the heat and radiation coming off a neutron star and machinery powered by a generator ring spinning through the magnetic field of said star... metalsmithing and space, two of my favorite things.

The universe itself is an overwhelmingly intelligent life form spawned from the undifferentiated matter the formless subconscious that first formed consciousness.. it's intelligence grew at lightspeeds building the blocks of existence forming forms out of the undifferentiated matter using frquencies and vibrations.. the universe literally spoke itself into existence. From the beginning to the death of the universe it is but a fleeting moment to the conciousness that spawned existence.
