Neutron stars release warm winds as they devour companion stars

Neutron stars release powerful warm winds after chowing down on their stellar companions, new research shows. 

Neutron stars are the remains of more massive stars that reached the end of their lives and exploded in violent supernovas, leaving behind a dense core that continues to collapse in on itself. These stellar corpses are the densest known objects in the universe, aside from black holes, which form when even larger stars die.
