The Heaviest Neutron Star or The Lightest Black Hole?

A new research study has claimed to have found an object in the elusive "mass gap" between the heaviest neutron star, and the lightest (i.e least heavy) black hole.

<p>Finding objects like this helps us refine our physics of when the collapse from neutron star to black hole happens - a limit known as the Tolman Oppenheimer Volkoff limit.&nbsp;</p><p><br></p>
