A neutron star is about 20 km in diameter and has the mass of about 1.4 times that of our Sun. This means that a neutron star is so dense that on Earth, one teaspoonful would weigh a billion tons! Because of its small size and high density, a neutron star possesses a surface gravitational field about 2 x 1011 times that of Earth. Neutron stars can also have magnetic fields a million times stronger than the strongest magnetic fields produced on Earth.

ok so can someone explain me this www.abovetopsecret.com... the vid of this post is related to this?? because all i see in that video is "nibiru" being really far from earth.
1. The copper impactor generated such an energetic explosion that the primary mission sensors were swamped and the primary mission of photographing the crater was unable to be carried out. (Such a flash would be expected with a metal object approaching a highly charged object)
"We didn't expect the success of one part of the mission (bright dust cloud) to affect a second part (seeing the resultant crater). But that is part of the fun of science, to meet with the unexpected. "
Physicist Wal Thornhill commenting:
"It is now well documented that every scientist associated with the project was stunned by the scale of the energetic outburst. These scientists understood the kinetics of impact, and they all agreed that the explosion would be equivalent to 4.8 tons of TNT. That’s a good-sized bomb, but not even close to what occurred."
2. The impact generated finely divided dust, something that should be impossible due to sublimation. Dust particles must be in their pristine state.
3. Photographs of the surface showed sharp relief, a rocky appearance, and impact craters with no clearly defined ice, not a dirty half melted snowball.
4. No water ice has been found on any other comets surface. See comet Borrelly and comet Wild 2.
5. Massive changes in the spectrum compared to before and after impact (something completely unexpected from a melting snowball).
6. "Dust jets" (they are really plasma plumes) on the dark side of the comet.
7. And then there is the fact that at best only 0.5% of the surface could be claimed to be ice. - and even that's a stretch in my opinion.
"Since the visible images have a higher spatial resolution, we use those images to calculate the extent of ice on Tempel 1's surface. That turns out to be a small fraction of the surface, only 0.5%. " (deepimpact.umd.edu...)
Like people, all comets are a little different. We've been studying comets for hundreds of years -- 116 years in the case of comet Holmes -- but still do not really understand them
