There was recently a significant interests in the effects of strong
and long-range intercomponent interactions on the physics of mixtures
of both electrically charged and electrically neutral condensates in
contexts of condensed matter and cold atoms physics. Since the neutron
stars is also a system where the presence of a mixture of strongly
interacting superfluids is expected, some of these recent condensed
matter developments may be applicable in neutron stars physics. I will
give a brief overview of these phenomena.
