                        I'm confused about one thing. If Strange Quarks are the most stable, why do they turn into up and down quarks?

                                                  Ehm... If this state of matter is confined in the nucleus of some neutron stars and its state is so "infectious", why the surrounding part of a neutron star is not in the same state?

                                                                                  • Darío Seacht Tintreach
