The heaviest neutron star known is shredding its companion

The heaviest neutron star ever detected is shredding its companion while spinning on its axis over 700 times per second. 

The neutron star, known as PSR J0952-0607, was discovered in 2017 about 3,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Sextans. Recent measurements show the star weighs 2.35 times as much as the sun, which makes it the heaviest neutron star known.
