What If Our Sun Became a Neutron Star?

  • Yayınlanma Tarihi:  3 ay önce
  • Neutron stars are massive gravitational monsters, and orbiting one wouldn't end up well for our planet. But what if we took just a spoonful of it and transported it to Earth? Such a tiny amount of a neutron star couldn't possibly destroy us all... or could it?

    That the star was this ⭐

    But it's actually like this 🏀

    to form a neutron star it must be 3 × the sun

    not 10- i forgot tsk idiot

    study harder bro

    2:26 This statement is only partially correct. There are neutron stars that do rotate over 700 times per second and these are actually recycled pulsars found in millisecond pulsar binary systems. Rotation powered pulsars rotate on the order of ms as well, but not that fast. Accreting neutron stars still rotate fast, but they are much slower than that. Some of the slowest pulsars we know include the accreting neutron star in 2S 0114+650, which rotates once every 2.7 hr, the accreting neutron star in AX J1910.7+0917, which rotates once every 10 hr, and so on. There are also the cases in between.

    Also the magnetic field would be worse as opposed to the gravitational pull. Unless if one of the objects inside the solar system were inside the innermost stable circular orbit (ISCO), they would be fine. Would life exist on any of the objects in our solar system including Earth. I doubt it

    This didn’t even address the question. It just spouted some poorly-worded assumptions about neutron star properties.

    If a Neutron Star replaces the Sun we can name it Nidavellir.

    The planets wouldn't get destroyed, just get closer and change into a more pronounced elliptical orbit, maybe Merkury, Venus and Earth would get destroyed but that depends on the density

    What if the sun never exploded? (Of course never turned into a neutron star)
    And what if neutron star never existed?

    @whatif : I thought that a neutron star with the same mass of the sun would not affect the orbit of any planet, would just be much smaller, after all the gravitacional pull depens on the mass, the distance, and the centre of gravity, none of those would change, thats why a blackhole with the mass of the sun in its place would also not affect any orbit. So why did you said that the planets would be swallowed? Is there something that i did not understand?
