comment Why do neutrons repel each other?
@Marek: You cannot really say that the Coulomb force don't play a role in nuclear physics ... And regarding the magnetic moment and VdW forces, it plays a role in experiments with neutrons at very low energies (almost at rest), so I think it is a good complement to other answers. That being said I can admit that it is not the most comprehensive answer I ever posted.

comment Why do neutrons repel each other?
"parts about proton-proton and neutron-neutron are completely wrong" : "parts" like me answer is so damn long. @Marek altough you most of the time provides good answers, the way you interact is once again quite strange ... In addition you cannot say that coulomb force cannot be discussed in this case ... It plays a role in nuclear physics, even if in some cases it can be neglected (in any case one have to discuss why).

comment Hubble's law and conservation of energy
@Marek: If one does'nt know about time symmetry, it is almost impossible to consider that just reading your (correct) answer.

comment What's with the very slightly larger mass of the neutron compared to the proton?
@Frederic: Yes I would, in a process called $\beta^+$, which is energetically acceptable because it appears in a bound state (a nucleus) and the binding energy has to be considered. I meant that it is incorrect because of the "is": a neutron "is" a proton and an electron, meaning something like a intimately bound state or something like that.

comment Resonance in a gravitational field?
"Resonance in a gravitational field" makes me thing about that: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orbital_resonance . But your question is strangely stated..
