When I say giant, that's a huge understatement, the Hubble space telescope discovered a group of stars 100 times larger that the sun, that's unimaginable, because the sun is insanely big, we used to think the biggest thing in the entire universe, but it's really small in comparison these days. Wow mind boggling to say the least.

Indeed, a mind-boggling one. Science is my least favorite subject when I was a kid. It's nice that you've been posting scientific trivia. I'm learning.

@TRBRocks420 That's also one thing I noticed about your scientific trivia, they are brief, readable and fun! I think I'm beginning to love Science.

It is mind boggling for sure TR. It also boggles my brain how anyone can invent this stuff that sees all the other stuff. Fascinating.

Yeah, it's something else for sure. God knew what he was doing, when he designed the universe.

And even one is heavier. We watch sci-fi and see space crafts zipping around objects in space but in reality it would like trying to pull a fully loaded semi trailer with a children's tricycle.

I will shortly be tracking down any photos of these stars, I'd read one may be 250 times bigger than our sun

@TRBRocks420 Yes, when you think of the G force and the amount of energy needed to counter that, the star can't burn for long. Very lucky to see it in this stage!

I think there probably is, pretty sure NASA releases them all. I would have to check though.

Yeah, crazy. I remember in elementary school thinking the Sun was the biggest thing that's ever existed. We have learned a lot since then.

Astronomy has always fascinated me. The immense bigness of some stars is beyond my comprehension.

Yeah, pretty crazy bigger than the sun, when I was in school. I thought the sun was the biggest.
