Currently at 265 solar masses, it's 10 times bigger and 10 million times more luminous of the sun.

Very interesting, 2 moons and a mega-star, just amazing.
Be careful were you step, I've booby-trapped your whole room, the next step you take might be your last, either that or you'll step on the party activator button, if so then PARTY TIME! :mrgreen:

I hadn't. I don't get out often enough to actually look at the stars though. :/

I'm more concerned about what we haven't discovered yet...

It's actually the unpredictable that concerns me more than the undiscovered.

Solar mass ejections, trans-earth asteroids, and gamma-ray bursters have all been discovered. They're just dangerously unpredictable.

Nasa realized the math for orbit/rentry was easier if the essential shape of a craft was triangular with one side inline with earth's center. Form following function or visa versa...?
