Neutron Star Pasta - Cray - 12-24-2015

Bless his noodlely appendages, the Flying Spaghetti Monster in the sky has manifested in neutron stars. Or at least in a physics paper about them that needed a lot of pasta analogies.

With such structuring of nuclear matter, the question for me is: does this provide an additional mechanism for forming an N-brain?

Particles in the crust of a magnetar are apparently elongated by the magnetic field into long, thin needles. Looks like the transistion zone is structurally interesting, too.
