This is really cool ó astronomers using the Very Large Telescope in Chile and Hubble have discovered the most massive star ever foundÖ and itís 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. Thatís a whopping huge star!
