Ok, here's a question. A Neutron star is held "up" by neutron degeneracy-they can't occupy the same space. But if a Neutron star is too heavy, then that degeneracy breaks down, and it collapses to a black hole. What about quark degeneracy? Isn't there a point at which quarks can hold "up" the massive body?
