Bug-sized Mountains That Might Power Ripples in Space-time

Fabian Gittins and Nils Andersson from the University of Southampton in the UK simulated the forces that may cause imperfections in neutron stars. They are trying to find out how these hypothetical mountains would have emerged and how large they would be. The scientists modeled the highest peak a neutron star crust can support, i.e., before the crust fractures.
