did you know..
the density of a neutron star is quoted as about a billion tons per teaspoonful.....
that means crushing gravity ensures that the star is a near-perfect sphere, compressing all matter so that a sand-grain-sized scoop of neutron star material would weigh as much as a cruise ship on earth.
the 100 million degree temperature would also ensure you'ld be vaporised instantly.
