I wonder how massive a star could get before its core has so much gravity it becomes a black hole...

I know previous theories as to how large stars can get have been shattered. I'm sure its just a matter of time before we find an even bigger one.

Very interesting. I wonder if the thin soup of Hydrogen, Helium and Dark Matter created an environment which favoured larger bodies as opposed to smaller, less stable examples.
