You won't remember me, I have been here once more than a year ago with a few questions. Now I have a new question. If proton decay destroys all "normal" objects in the universe, what will happen to neutron stars and quark stars?
The wikipedia says:
--- Although the phenomenon is referred to as "proton decay", the effect would also be seen in neutrons bound inside atomic nuclei. ---
Is it the same with neutrons bound inside a neutron star? And what about quark stars? I don't like the idea that they are still there, after even the biggest black holes have vaporized via Hawking-radiation.
