I am sure some of you have seen this, but for others that haven't It is very interesting. It really goes to show how little we are in the universe...

A star and a flag for a great reference thread. How big are the stars that go supernova?

Someone may be able to correct me if I am wrong, I am not an astronomer by any means. But I believe there are multiple types of stars that go supernova. From a white dwarf to a red giant, or class M star. The largest star on that diagram is Antares, a Class M Supergiant. The radius of Antares is larger than the orbit of Mars!

Video link wasn't working, so I just put the link in. This takes those same pictures and puts them in a movie. Amazing to watch. Those are not even the largest structures, but the size is mind staggering.
