ananyo (2519492) writes "Astronomers say that they have discovered the first example of a long-sought cosmic oddity: a bloated, dying star with a surprise in its core — an ultradense neutron star.
Such entities, known as Thorne-Zytkow objects, are theoretically possible but would alter scientists' understanding of how stars can be powered. Since Thorne-Zytkow objects were first proposed in 19751, researchers have occasionally offered up candidates, but none have been confirmed."

Should read "first proposed in 1975", It appears that the trailing "1" was a superscript link, but that was lost when the submitter cut-n-pasted the summary.
