Scientists have found out how much the largest star in the universe weighs

It is located in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), and its mass, as it turned out, is approximately 150-200 solar masses. It is worth noting that the celestial body is located at a distance of about 150 thousand light years from Earth.

The recent discovery was made possible through the use of the Gemini Observatory telescope. It was with its help that scientists obtained the clearest images of the cluster to date.

It is reported that the results of observations will at least become a reference point for determining the upper limit of the mass of the largest stars. This, in turn, may be of decisive importance for understanding the mechanisms of their formation.
