Elenin is a magnetar? A black hole that didn't make it?

No event horizon. But still very dense. Small, 16-20km.

Give a good chit chat. --And have a nice day.

Sure why not.
It could be anything besides just a Comet as long as we are speculating................

but I would imagine the X-rays and gamma rays that it would be giving of would be pretty noticeable


A magnetar is a type of neutron star with an extremely powerful magnetic field, the decay of which powers the emission of copious amounts of high-energy electromagnetic radiation, particularly X-rays and gamma rays.[1] The theory regarding these objects was proposed by Robert Duncan and Christopher Thompson in 1992, but the first recorded burst of gamma rays thought to have been from a magnetar was detected on March 5, 1979.[2] During the following decade, the magnetar hypothesis has become widely accepted as a likely explanation for soft gamma repeaters (SGRs) and anomalous X-ray pulsars

So I'm going to have to say NO it's not a Magnetar.

How do you know it is dense?

As for its size, very typical for a cometary body.

Got tired of the brown dwarf argument and started a new, baseless thread?
