Astronomers find most massive star ever discovered

This is really cool — astronomers using the Very Large Telescope in Chile and Hubble have discovered the most massive star ever found… and it’s a bruiser, weighing in at 114 times the mass of the Sun. This blows away the previously most massive known star, which had a mere 83 solar masses. Cripes. That’s a whopping huge star!
