Researchers from the UPC and the IAC discover one of the most massive neutron stars. Using a pioneering method, researchers from the Astronomy and Astrophysics Group of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics (IAC) have found a neutron star of about 2.3 solar masses—one of the most massive ever detected. The study was published in 'The Astrophysical Journal' and opens a new path of knowledge in many fields of astrophysics and nuclear physics.
