QGP May Exist In the Center of Neutron Stars

In the normal nuclear density, the average energy of each nucleon should reach at least 175 Mev, or 2 trillion degree, to obtain the state of QGP, or Quark-Gluon Plasma.  However in the center of neutron star, the particular high density makes the state of QGP possible in the normal temperature.  The neutron stars are formed when stars collapse into a state that is made of neutrons with density of nuclei.  The earth would have had diameter of about 100 meters if it were a neutron star instead of 12,800 km.
