A Teaspoon of a Neutron Star Would Weigh About 6 Billion Tons
Neutron stars are incredibly dense remnants of massive stars that have undergone a supernova explosion. The material in a neutron star is so densely packed that a mere teaspoon of it would weigh as much as approximately 6 billion tons on Earth. This is because the gravitational force on a neutron star’s surface is extraordinarily intense. The core of a neutron star is composed almost entirely of neutrons, and the pressure is so immense that it prevents the star from collapsing further into a black hole. This staggering mass-to-volume ratio is a remarkable example of the extreme conditions in the universe.
