THE NETWORK OF MAGNETARS
»A neutron star is created when a star collapses in a supernova. This compresses a huge sun into a massive sphere with a diameter of about 12 miles. Due to the principles of electrodynamics, the magnetic field of the original sun does not shrink; instead, the original angular momentum is preserved so it remains the same— its cross section is just a million times smaller. The resultant field strength is several quadrillion times stronger than the magnetic field of our Sun.
OCEAN OF STONE In its interior a magnetar’s density is around 330 million tons per square centimeter— three times greater than that of an atomic nucleus. On the other hand, the outer layer probably consists of an ocean of liquid matter.
