Heaviest Neutron Star Ever Discovered Is a “Black Widow”

The most massive neutron star ever discovered is destroying its companion while rotating over 700 times per second on its axis.

In the constellation Sextans, roughly 3,000 light-years from Earth, the neutron star, also known as PSR J0952-0607, was found in 2017.

The remains of supernova explosions that occur when gigantic stars die when their cores run out of fuel are known as neutron stars.

The only way to see neutron stars, which are born spinning and emit radio waves, X-rays, and gamma rays like cosmic lighthouses, is through their beams.

For instance, according to science, neutron stars collide with one another and become black holes when they become too heavy.
