Release Date: January 4, 2010

An article in the New Scientist about a new class of star that may recreate the conditions of the big bang in its incredibly dense core reports a study by De-Chang Dai, postdoctoral associate in physics, shows that the deaths of very massive stars may lead to "electroweak" stars that creep even closer to the black hole limit.
