Neutron Star
  • Description

    The survey team has found a tiny stellar remnant, the tiny burnt out remnant of a red dwarf. The disorganized accretion disk is evidence of a relatively recent event--perhaps the capture and tidal disruption of a large rocky body in the last 500,000 years. The star's nearly non-existant spin argues that it may be as much as 12 billion years old.
