Description
Model of a Neutron Star’s Interior
This drawing shows the theoretical model of a 1.4 solar mass neutron star. The
neutron star has a superconducting, superfluid core 9.7 km in radius,
surrounded by a 0.6-km-thick mantle of superfluid neutrons. The neutron star’s
crust is only 0.3-km thick (the length of four football fields) and is composed of
heavy nuclei and free electrons. The thicknesses of the layers are not shown to
scale.
