White dwarfs are about the size of the earth but they are 200,000 to 400,000 times more dense. (They contain almost as much mass as the sun.) Question one: can we duplicate this density in a lab? If so, when did we accomplish that? Matter normally comes in five forms; the common 3 are solid, liquid and gas. The uncommon forms are the Bose - Einstein condensate and plasma. (One at extremely low temp the other at extremely high.) Are white dwarfs composed of one or more of these 5? Or at these densities can we assume a more exotic form of matter is present? For example, is it possible that they are composed, at least partially, of matter which has overcome electron degeneracy? In other words, is it theoretically possible that the only way to compact matter to a density 200,000 times more dense than solid granite is to strip the electrons, leaving only atomic nuclei? I apologize in advance for asking such stupid questions and i appreciate everyone's patience.
