Magnetars: The Mysteries of Powerful Magnetic Stars in Astrophysics

Magnetars are created through the process of supernova explosions, where the core of a massive star collapses under gravity. The intense compression and rearrangement of particles in the core result in the formation of a neutron star. If the original star had a sufficiently strong magnetic field, the magnetic field of the resulting neutron star becomes greatly amplified, creating a magnetar.
