Zombie Worlds: 5 Spooky Planets Orbiting Dead Stars

Post by Riddick » 11-14-2022 11:11 PM

When stars run out of fuel, they collapse, burst into supernovas, then become very dense neutron stars. Under most circumstances, the supernova explosion obliterates any planets or blows them into deep space. But thanks to the radio waves some pulsar neutron stars emit, five planets have been detected that still revolve around collapsed neutron stars. Read what we know about these weird worlds at The Conversation.

Wow! That read was way over my head, literally. But very interesting! Thank you Riddick.

But what term for Old Sole came first? Early mankind's decision makers said this warming, life supporting light is our star or should we name that bright ball our sun?☀

If all stars are bright white. Why is our sun bright yellow? Is that because it's a sun and not a star? Lol :lol: Just fun'n around but someone writing that great article could explain that major difference in a couple hundred words. 😎 🌞


How The Conversation is Different

Every article you read here is written by university scholars and researchers with deep expertise in their subjects, sharing their knowledge in their own words. We don’t oversimplify complicated issues, but we do explain and clarify. We believe bringing the voices of experts into the public discourse is good for democracy.
