Mission Picture of the Day
EAW contains many different battle areas, many of which contain highly dangerous target locations. Each day we feature a different picture of one of our online missions, along with a brief explanation written by
one of our virtual pilots.
If the Earth could somehow be transformed to the ultra-high density of a
neutron star ,
it might appear as it does in the above computer generated
figure. Due to the very strong gravitational field, the neutron star
distorts light from the background sky greatly. If you look closely, two
images of the constellation Orion are visible. The gravity of this
particular neutron star is so great that no part of the neutron star is
blocked from view - light is pulled around by gravity even from the back of
the neutron star.
