Friends who like “X-Men” must be impressed by the super villain in the movie, Wan Wang, whose ability is to control the magnetic field, and the ability to use magnetic force has reached the point of being superb. In the movie, he can easily float a 30,000-ton nuclear submarine and even use magnetic force to extract iron from a living human blood. According to the calculation, we can understand that the magnetic field strength of the magnetic king is about 450,000 Gauss, which is equivalent to 750,000 times the earth’s magnetic field. Such a powerful magnetic field is truly amazing, but compared to a strange star in the universe, the magnetic force of the magnetic king is not worth mentioning.
There is a kind of celestial body in the depths of the universe, which scientists call a magnetic star. As its name suggests, the magnetic star is equivalent to a giant magnet in the universe, and the magnetic field it produces can reach 10 to 12 powers of 10 to 15 squares. Compared with the magnetic field strength of hundreds of thousands of Gaussians, it is 10 billion times stronger.
Such a strong magnetic field is enough to make there is no material around 1000 kilometers around the magnetic star. If you are close to this range, the powerful magnetic field is not just tearing your body apart, but tearing you from the atomic level. It can make atoms become rods and affect the electrons inside the atoms, so that they cannot form molecules. Eventually these particles will be captured and become part of the magnet.
The magic of the magnetic star is not limited to this, its magnetic field even exceeds the limits of classical mechanics, and entered the field of quantum mechanics. According to the scientists’ research, it is found that the magnetic star can also produce smashed photons, which makes the speed of light slow down and other magical phenomena. A strong magnetic field can split a photon into two. Of course, in some cases, two photons will merge into one.
In fact, the magnetic star is not as mysterious as we imagined. Its true face in the universe is the “neutron star” that scientists often mention. In the final stage of life, a massive star will explode with a supernova, and the core will collapse rapidly under the influence of gravity. The powerful pressure can crush the atom and push the electron into the nucleus. When electrons are combined with protons in the nucleus, they become neutrons. Therefore, the product left behind after the explosion of the supernova is a pile of cores composed of neutrons. It is small in size and only about 20 kilometers in diameter. But its weight can exceed our sun, so its density is extremely large, and the material of a fingernail on the neutron star is worth the quality of the entire Mount Everest.
Not every neutron star can be called a magnetic star, and only about one-tenth of the neutron stars become magnetic stars when they form. Because its magnetic field strength is 1000 times that of a neutron star, it is able to confine the light and force them to be emitted from the poles. This energy forms a terrible gamma-ray burst. The range of gamma-ray bursts can reach 10 light years, which means that the space within 10 light years of the magnetic star is the forbidden zone of life, and any star that exists here will be shot.
Fortunately, the scientists have so far observed a total of five magnetic stars, all of which are 9000 light-years away, and the most recent one is in the Milky Way, called SGR 0418. Other scientists believe that the magnetic star may be a quark star in the theoretical sense, because the energy of the magnet star is thousands of times higher than that of the neutron star, so this may cause the neutron and the proton to be crushed and become a tiny quark. . If this is demonstrated, it will be another great discovery in astronomy.
