Viewpoint: Neutron-Star Implosions as Heavy-Element Sources

This scenario is similar to one proposed by Joseph Bramante and Tim Linden in 2016 [11]. Instead of PBHs, they proposed that dark matter particles could accumulate inside an aging neutron star to form a star-consuming black hole. As the black hole accreted mass, it would release enough gravitational binding energy to power the ejection of dense neutron matter for strong-r-process synthesis.
