Hot pasta helps cool the hot, angry neutron stars

Neutron stars are furious ghosts of giant stars: hot, vortex core aliens Matter Supernovas then left behind. Like thermoses filled with hot noodle soup, they take ins to cool. But now, researchers think they know how these stars do it: with the huge help of pasta.

No, the corpses of these ultradence stars are not full of spaghetti. Instead, neutrons cool by releasing eastern particles called stars Neutrino. And a new study shows that they accomplish that task because of an underlying type of substance called molecular pasta, a wavy, coiled material that has almost no molecules, but absolutely no mash. This molecular pasta structure creates low-density regions inside the stars, allowing neutrinos and heat to escape.
