The Noddy answers are always the best.I'm just waiting for lightarrow to point out something wrong with such a simple answer.
Measurement blah blah position harumph velocity mumble mumble; we all know the score by now.So, in a neutron star there are all these neutrons (hardly surprising really). They're squeezed together very tightly by gravity; even tighter than Graham Norton and his "friend" at a Village People concert. Now if they're being squeezed together like that, surely it must restrict their movement somewhat. But do they have less freedom of position and velocity than ordinary neutrons at the centre of an atom? Could there come a point where their movement is so restricted by being squeezed together that the Uncertainty Principle either no longer applies or, at least, needs modifying?
