NASA'S Chandra Finds Superfluid in Neutron Star's Core
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has discovered the first direct evidence for a superfluid, a bizarre, friction-free state of matter, at the core of a neutron star. Superfluids created in laboratories on Earth exhibit remarkable properties, such as the ability to climb upward and escape airtight containers. View News Article (2011-02-24)

Solving the riddle of neutron stars
It has not yet been possible to measure the gravitational waves predicted by Einstein's theory of general relativity.  View News Article (2015-03-10)

Hotter than expected neutron star surfaces help explain superburst frequency
A new theoretical thermometer built from heavy-duty mathematics and computer code suggests that the surfaces of certain neutron stars run significantly hotter than previously expected. Hot enough, in fact, to at least partially answer an open question in astrophysics — how to explain the observed frequency of ultra-violent explosions known as superbursts that sometimes ignite on such stars'...

A Blast from Its Past Dates the Youngest Neutron-Star Binary
X-rays streaming toward Earth from the region near a neutron star that is cannibalizing its companion star have revealed the pair to be the youngest "X-ray binary" yet known. View News Article (2013-12-05)

Supernova Blast Provides Clues to Age of Binary Star System
Data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has revealed faint remnants of a supernova explosion and helped researchers determine Circinus X-1 -- an X-ray binary -- is the youngest of this class of astronomical objects found to date. View News Article (2013-12-05)

Pulsar find boosts hope for gravity-wave hunters
Neutron star pairs may merge and give off a burst of gravity waves about six times more often than previously thought, scientists report in today's issue of the journal Nature [4 December]. If so, the current generation of gravity-wave detectors might be able to register such an event every year or two, rather than about once a decade - the most optimistic prediction until now. Gravity waves were... View News Article (2003-12-02)

'Jekyll and Hyde' star morphs from radio to X-ray pulsar and back again
Astronomers have uncovered the strange case of a neutron star with the peculiar ability to transform from a radio pulsar into an X-ray pulsar and back again.  View News Article (2013-09-26)

First gamma-ray-only pulsar observation opens new window on stellar evolution
About three times a second, a 10,000-year-old stellar corpse sweeps a beam of gamma-rays toward Earth. View News Article (2008-10-17)

Star eats companion
ESA's Integral space observatory, together with NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer spacecraft, has found a fast-spinning pulsar in the process of devouring its companion. View News Article (2005-09-07)

XMM-Newton reveals a tumbling neutron star
Using data from ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray observatory, an international group of astrophysicists discovered that one spinning neutron star doesn't appear to be the stable rotator scientists would expect. View News Article (2006-04-20)
