Magnetized Hypermassive Neutron Star Remnant
This image shows a model of a magnetized hypermassive neutron star remnant. This particular frame is the endframe of general relativistic simulation of a magnetized binary neutron star merger. The model was created using OpenDX software in the VMIL. For more information visit http://research.physics.uiuc.edu/CTA/undergrad/undergrad.html.
