Existence of Black Neutron Star


A sufficiently large star will collapse to form a Black Hole Singularity due to Gravitational Pressure beyond Neutron Degeneracy. A Black Hole exhibits extremely strong Gravitational attraction that no particle or electromagnetic radiation can escape from it. The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called Event Horizon. In this work it is proposed that there exists a Neutron star smaller than Event Horizon, which is termed as Black Neutron Star. Furthermore an alternative method is proposed to ascertain the maximum permissible mass limit of the Neutron Star and the minimum mass limit of the naturally occurring gravitationally collapsed Black hole.
