The equation of state of QCD at large baryon densities is out of the reach of first principles calculations, but it can be constrained by measurements of neutron stars properties and gravitational waves produced in binary mergers. I discuss the possible application of gauge/gravity duality to finite baron density and how it fares regarding astrophysical constraints in a simple model.
