The breaking of translational symmetry leads to the depletion of the neutron superfluid reservoir in the inner crust of a neutron star, similarly to superfluid helium in porous media or cold atomic gases in optical lattices. During this talk, calculations of the neutron superfluid fraction will be reviewed, and some astrophysical implications will be briefly discussed.
