Abstract

We discuss the spatial asymmetry in the neutrino emission from spin-1 color-superconducting quark matter in the A phase. The asymmetry could potentially lead to a "neutrino rocket" mechanism for neutron stars whose cores are made of quark matter. However, an estimate of the resulting velocities, using the specific heat and the total emissivity of the A phase, shows that no observable "kicks" due this mechanism is expected.
