Recently read one of the BA's articles entitled "everythings under the sun" (very informative)and then i came across this article on discovery.com....i dont know how to post the link right....(http://dsc.discovery.com/news/reu/20011112/star.html), which seems to disagree on the ultimate mass of a star and also seems to say that very massive stars are all extinct now. so....i am a little confused. Specifically, this part of the discovery.com article..."This gravitational collapse resulted in the formation of huge, bright stars unlike any that exist today, added Abel, the study's senior author.
These original stars were huge, with a size range of about 30 to 300 times the mass of the sun, with 100 solar masses the most likely size, Abel said. But none of them still exist, having blown apart eons ago in supernovae, or star explosions.", seems to be in conflict with what the BA wrote.
