Lumpy Neutron Stars can Generate Gravitational Waves - Universe Today
A new simulation of neutron stars suggest they may not be as smooth as predicted. The rapidly spinning exotic bodies may have significant topological features like mountains. These “lumps” on the star’s surface may cause fluctuations in space-time as the variation of the huge gravitational field varies on each spin. This fluctuation may generate gravitational … Continue reading "Lumpy Neutron Stars can Generate Gravitational Waves"
