Structural similarity found in human cells and neutron star

#1  Postby the_5th_ape » Nov 06, 2016 6:41 am

We humans may be more aligned with the universe than we realize. According to research published in the journal Physical Review C, neutron stars and cell cytoplasm have something in common: structures that resemble multistory parking garages.

On that basis, you could claim that a spiral galaxy is like a pain-au-raisin! :hungry:

Structural similarity found in Neuton Stars and Parking Garages could be the headline. It's called a metaphor.

Nuclear physicists have an apt terminology for the entire class of shapes they see in their high-performance computer simulations of neutron stars: nuclear pasta. These include tubes (spaghetti) and parallel sheets (lasagna) connected by helical shapes that resemble Terasaki ramps.

Can we blame our weight on this?

In cookery, use sparingly. Even a pinch (1/16 teaspoon) would weigh more than 60 million tonnes on Earth. Heavy meal indeed.

It would be in kipping with the gravity of the situation.

I've always thought that. And the little sprinkling of sugar on them are stars!
