    Inside neutron stars we can find the weirdest and most dangerous substance in the universe: Strange matter. What is strange matter, how dangerous is it and what can it tell us about the origin of the universe?

    What if, you were a super advanced civilization in war with another super advanced civilization. If you had your hands on a bunch of strangelets, you could just shoot them at planets, starts, ships and instantly obliterate them. It might be a new kind of warfare.

    Well if it did release the electrons of any atom we throw into it, we could generate as much power as we'd ever need with it. It would also become the strongest weapon we would have at our disposal but hey, free power.

    if it only takes one neutron star collision to create trillions of strangelet, which one can destroy a star or planet, wouldn't the world turn mostly strange matter fast? why are we not observing those polluted strange stars?

    How come everything can teach us how the universe began but still we don't know how it began ...

  • Nikolay Yurchenko
    Nikolay Yurchenko 5 days ago

    If strangelet can convert stars, we would see many stars converted as we observe through telescopes. We would also see neutron stars with unusually tiny masses. As we don't see these, we can say that hypotesis of this strange matter is highly improbable.

    • Nikolay Yurchenko
      Nikolay Yurchenko 2 days ago

      @Alex M. We currently see stars almost across the whole visible universe observing time periods almost from the first stars birth (for the most farthest galaxies with big red shift). We track many neutron stars and know masses of many of them. If such an phenomenon with strangelets infection existed, it would largely spread across the universe and affect our observations. And moreover, if strangelets are infectious, we would have very different neutron stars. Because strangelets would posess the whole neutron star matter and it behavior would largely differ from what we observe.

    • Alex M.
      Alex M. 2 days ago

      With our current means. For a long time black holes were unobservable, we simply divised a way to "see" all that is affected by them decades before we could "observe" them. Who knows in the near future?

    So black holes save us but still are drawing us in to finish us, so we are super rare to reach this point, or the universe is so big we have yet to understand how to use and Manipulate such elements properly. Or are we just a part or a cell or atom of a way greater being.

    The idea Strangelets exist is just a theory, its purely a hypothetical particle, and the theory they would breakdown other nearby protons and neutrons and produce more strangelets is just a theory, so this whole video is a theory ontop of a theory ontop of a theory..
