Massive quake leaves neutron star ringing note of “F sharp”

A massive quake in a neutron star left the super-dense star ringing like a bell, researchers say—and if we could have heard it, it would have sounded a slightly miss tuned version of the note from a piano’s 22nd key, called F sharp.

scientists say this vibration will let them for the first time probe what’s inside a neutron star, a super-compact object believed to be something like a giant atomic nucleus.

NASA also released an animation of an explosion that accompanied the quake. Researchers said it occurred halfway across our Milky Way galaxy and was the largest of its type ever recorded.

An international team of astrophysicists described the blast in the July 20 issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters, a research journal.

They said the burst produced vibrations in the star that generated quick fluctuations in the X-ray radiation it released into space. These pulses are emitted during each seven-second rotation of the fast-spinning star and reveal the frequency, or speed, of the star’s vibrations.

“This explosion was akin to hitting the neutron star with a gigantic hammer, causing it to ring like a bell,” said Richard Rothschild, an astrophysicist at the University of California and one of the authors of the report.

“Now the question is: what does the frequency of the neutron star’s oscillations—the tone produced by the ringing bell—mean?”

And isn't it interesting that the frequency is also in the Kings chamber in the Great Pyramids...
