OK, so it's catchy title, and the truth is way heavier than I can imagine:

So, when at the surface of neutron star, you could be walking in almost a foot of mud.

Gravity is still the main force being the reason for this.

But seriously, a Black hole is still defined by means of a funnel or tract pointed at an angle in space, maybe infinitely in length.

The whole subject is important to the subject field of star or stellar evolution, so thanks for the reminder.

More that particles should be round or roundish in structure, so therefore still a bit of space when touching each other.

I am noticing that a Neutron could be consisting of three quarks, each with its separate attrbutes or properties.

So, down the river for not making it any singularity just either, and we always could be asking or questioning what nature is all about.

Wonders of nature perhaps, but also makes me wonder, and thinking, just about the same.

Checking in with this thread, the neutron star in the Crab nebula should also be a pulsar, and here orbiting its own axis 30 times a second,
and the beam could be directed towards Earth for being visible.

But not the thing I doing right now, so leaving it just there.

Anyway, just chocolate for not any cake, and the beam should not be any green for color either.
