Inside neutron stars we can find the weirdest and most dangerous substance in the universe: Strange matter. What is strange matter, how dangerous is it and what can it tell us about the origin of the universe?

Even strange matter needs a minimum of mass to be stable. Otherwise the LHC had destroyed the world so far. Secondly it is highly possible that our Solar System contains a lot of matter, who could came from Neutron star crashes.

So why wouldn't the strange quarks within the neutron star spread and convert the neutron star into a quark star? Or... it always does, and the center of a black hole is indeed the quark star...

If strange matter can infect other stars, how our universe could be born? Should we receive the signal of energy released when a star is being infected if this theory is true?
