The Neutron Star
A Tablespoon of Neutron star weighs more than 1 billion tons (900 billion kg). So while you could lift a spoonful of our Star (The Sun), A tablespoon of the Sun, depending on which part you get it from, would weigh about 5Lbs (2.2 kg) — you cannot lift a spoonful of neutron star.
Most Neutron Stars are seen as Pulsars. The fastest known pulsar is PSR J1748-2446ad and rotates at a speed of 716 times per Second. At its equator it is moving at 156585.54044381 Mph and has a Radius of approximately 10.5 miles
