2019-06-17: How Black Holes Kill Galaxies

  • 13:04: Tricky asks us why we don't see more strange matter from neutron star collisions.
  • 13:12: ... stars are actually "Strange Stars" whose nuclear material is composed of strange matter which means up, down, and strange ...
  • 13:24: If such a star was disrupted, then we would expect to see blobs of strange matter in the debris.
  • 13:30: ... the thing is, strange matter is probably only stable under extreme pressure Release it from the ...
  • 13:47: Even if strange matter is stable as so called "Strangelets" These are electrically neutral, so they don't have an electromagnetic signature.
  • 13:56: By the way, you wouldn't actually "see" strange matter.

2016-11-30: Pilot Wave Theory and Quantum Realism

  • 13:07: OK, so the hypothesis is that strange matter is the most stable matter in the universe.
  • 13:45: And the problem is that the universe at this time wasn't dense enough and was expanding too quickly for strange matter to form in any great abundance.
  • 13:55: That said, some strange matter made have formed during the quark epoch.
  • 14:07: ... on the as-yet-unknown physics of strange matter, these strangelets may even be expected to be more stable the larger they ...
  • 14:18: In fact, such strangelets may even convert any regular matter they come into contact to into strange matter.

2016-11-16: Strange Stars

  • 05:36: The result is strange matter.
  • 05:58: ... lower energy state means that strange matter may be the most stable form of matter in the universe, more stable even ...
  • 08:23: A possible explanation is that a quark matter core formed at the heart of this neutron star and is slowly transforming into strange matter.

2015-12-09: How to Build a Black Hole

  • 03:09: And it defines the volume that can be occupied by the strange matter in a neutron star.
