The opportunity to receive press in a publication of this level is also an exciting prospect for the team at Neutron Interactive.
Physicist Robert Wolf of the University of Greifswald in Germany and an international team were particularly interested in determining the mass of zinc-82, which some models predict should occur in the crusts of neutron stars.
To evaluate this possibility, theorists need to improve the models of neutron star composition.
The researchers expected the neutron star to have roughly one and a half times the mass of the Sun.
Making the plutonium bomb-building process especially difficult is the problem that Rhodes cites as the most difficult task in the Manhattan Project from the scientists' perspective: taking a hollow sphere of plutonium, crushing its 30 pounds into a softball sized compacted sphere, and releasing a stream of neutrons within it on a timetable of a few microseconds.
