Neutron Stars Humanity in a Sugar Cube announcement
“Neutron Stars: Humanity in a Sugar Cube”
Presented by Professor Ed Cackett
September 17 at 2:30 p.m
Community Room (3rd Floor) of the David Adamany Undergraduate Library.

Professor Cackett will discuss neutron stars, a type of stellar remnant that can result from the gravitational collapse of a massive star during a supernova event. Neutron stars and black holes are among the most exotic objects in the universe; studying neutron stars and black holes gives us access to exotic realms that we can’t explore on Earth. A lump of neutron star matter the size of a sugar cube would weigh as much as all humanity, and the stars have magnetic fields a trillion times Earth’s. Since we can’t reproduce such conditions in laboratories, we have to observe neutron stars with telescopes to figure out their properties.
