Neutron Stars: Clues to Dark Matter

Study Shows Neutron Stars Could Provide Clues to Dark Matter

A recent paper published in the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics by physicists from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the University of Melbourne in Australia reveals an intriguing discovery. They calculated that when dark matter particles collide and annihilate inside a cooling dead neutron star, the energy transferred could lead to a rapid increase in temperature of the star. This research indicates for the first time that a significant amount of energy could be stored within a few days. Neutron stars might hold the “key” to understanding the enigmatic dark matter, potentially guiding scientists towards unraveling a major cosmic mystery.
