The following is from the website MysteriousUniverse.org:
The idea that life can hypothetically exist on stars is not a new one. In a 1973 article titled “Life on Neutron Stars,” astronomer Frank Drake—co-founder of SETI and the person who, with Carl Sagan, designed the Pioneer plaque—described a thought experiment about what life on a neutron star might be like. In a 1987 article for New Scientist, astronomer and sci-fi novelist Robert Forward explored Drake’s idea (which formed the basis for his own novel Dragon’s Egg) in more detail:
In order to get across to lay audiences that a neutron star was more like a planet than a star, [Drake] speculated that life might exist on its solid surface …
“One can imagine life evolving on a neutron star in the same way as life evolved on Earth. However, the nuclei making up the biological matter … would not have electrons bound to them, as they do on Earth. Instead, the chemistry producing life depends on nuclear reactions, mediated by the strong force of the nuclei and not on the electromagnetic force responsible for terrestrial chemistry.
“An exchange of neutrons would bind the nuclei into “nuclear molecules” in the same way as the exchange of electrons binds atoms into normal molecules. We do not know whether bonding through neutrons would really lead to complex nuclear molecules at these high gravities, but for the sake of telling a story, I assume that they do.”
