I'm getting really tired of the patronizing tone of your replies.
1. It was you who mentioned BRIGHTNESS, when i stated BG was 9th largest star, as if correcting me.!! lol.
2. I notice you are no longer arguing the point of BG being the 9th/10th LARGEST star.
3.You speak as though the critical mass for Hypernova is known..it is not.!!
As you were wrong on points 1 and 2 and have not corrected your errors, it would seem your knowledge and expertise is clearly dubious.
If you want a debate about it write a thread stating exactly what the mass threshold is.
1)No, you stated it was the "9th biggest star in our galaxy" which is wrong.
2)"Large" and "Massive" are, again, two different things. BG is indeed one of the BIGGEST stars we can see, but indeed not anywhere NEAR the most
MASSIVE, which are the hypergiants. I have never contradicted myself on this.
3)You speak as if the mass of a hypernova is a big guess, which it's not! There's a bare minimum required for the calculations to work out, and BG
does not anywhere near qualify for these calculations.
If you want to debate about it, just get a few facts straight first, that's all I'm asking.
