Gravitational waves help reveal the weight limit for neutron stars, the densest objects in the cosmos
Science Magazine
How heavy can neutron stars get? Astrophysicists have long wondered how massive these stellar corpses could be without collapsing under their own gravity to form a black hole. Last year's blockbuster observations of two neutron stars merging revealed a ...
