Astronomers observe white dwarf stars solidifying into crystals (page 2)

Paris (ESA) Jan 10, 2019 Data captured by ESA's galaxy-mapping spacecraft Gaia has revealed for the first time how white dwarfs, the dead remnants of stars like our Sun, turn into solid spheres as the hot gas inside them cools down.
