A Conversation for Neutron Stars

Some of the strange properties of neutron stars are that they exhibit superfluidity and superconducitvity. Neutron stars can flow below the solid surface without any friction whatsoever, this is superfluidity. It is the cause of glitches in their rotation, because it can act as a bungee cord and snap the rotation back before it goes on again. Also, an electric charge will flow along forever because there is nothing to stop it. This is known as superconductivity. I think that is just super-mega-hyper cool. smiley - smiley
