  Abstract: A neutron may disintegrate into a proton, an electron, and an antineutrino. In Gravitational Collapse, electrons and protons combine into neutrons. We establish that the Neutron is a Collapsed-Hydrogen Atom composed of an electron and a proton: The Electron with Orbit Radius ~9.4 10^-14 m, Speed ~52 Mm/sec, ~327 times faster than in Hydrogen, Angular Velocity ~5.5 10^20 rad/sec, ~184,000 faster than in Hydrogen, Period ~1.1 10^-20 sec, and Frequency ~8.8 10^19 Hz. The ratio between the electron and proton Hydrogen orbits ~42.5 is preserved in the Neutron. The electron’s frequency ~10^20 indicates that X rays are due to the excited electron returning from a higher energy Neutron’s orbit to a lower Neutron’s orbit. The electric force between the electron and the proton is ~3 10^19 the gravitational force. Thus, a Neutron star is created by Electric Collapse. The Neutron’s Electric Binding Energy is ~553 times greater than the Hydrogen’s. The electric force in the Neutron, ~317,000 times the Hydrogen’s, is the source of the Nuclear Force that binds the Nucleus. A Nucleus composed of a proton and a neutron is a Mini One-Electron Molecule H2+, with an electron that orbits the two protons. The Neutrons supply electrons, which Orbitals about the Nucleus bond the protons, and ensure the Nucleus Stability. In Neutron Stars, the Gravitational Forces are negligible compared to the Nuclear Bonding, which keeps the star packed together. Posted to www.gauge-institute.org
