What is the largest star in the Universe? And why is it that large? And what ARE stars anyway?

    We created our first app ‘Universe in a Nutshell’, together with Tim Urban of Wait but Why! You can get it here:
    Appstore: http://kgs.link/universe-app-ios
    Google Playstore: http://kgs.link/universe-app-android
    Oh boy. Making an app is hard. It seemed so easy when we started. We underestimated the necessary work load and all the potential problems tenfold – this is not a figure of speech, this took ten times longer than we thought it would. And we are sort of used to working on big projects. So the first update to the app should hopefully be here in the next 24 hours (we are waiting for approval of the update in the app stores) – it will fix a bunch of small things that slipped through. We’ll constantly improve this thing because while it was honestly a horrible nightmare to make, it also was fun and we want to get better at it and make more things in the future. In case you don’t know Wait but Why btw, it is the best and most fun blog on the internet (https://waitbutwhy.com/2020/09/universe.html) and if you don’t know it you should change that like right now. Tim and I collaborated for the first time in 2013 and we have been good friends ever since. And this thing was something we started talking about years ago.
    So what is this thing we made and why? You can seamlessly travel from the smallest things in existence, past the coronavirus, human cells and dinosaurs all the way to the largest stars and galaxies and marvel at the whole observable universe. You can learn more about each object or simply enjoy the sheer scale of it all. It’s a fun plaything. The app is inspired by the “scale of the universe” website by the Huang Twins that Tim and I spent a lot of time with when it came out years ago – and felt that it was finally time to create a Wait but Why and Kurzgesagt version.
    There are no in-app purchases and no ads. All future updates are included! Since this is our first app we would love to hear your feedback so we can improve it over time. Leave us a five star review if you want to support it. Kurzgesagt and all the projects we do are mostly funded by viewers like you. So if you like the app we’ll make more digital things in future! Ok! Thank you for reading – Philipp

    John Taylor Gatto (multiple teacher of the year recipient) wrote a superb book on the infantilization of America. The art of deductive thinking and logic has been systematically removed from education, replaced with memorization and regurgitation of dogma. This presentation of total bullshit.....but it seams reasonable to you because you were indoctrinated in your formative years. Time to grow up. You've been lied to. The architects and purveyors of these lies are laughing at you.

    Alright, I have to write this.
    There´s a problem when they talk about "it´s X times larger than Y".
    So the first one, they say Jupiter is "11 times larger" than Earth, yet they show Jupiter with a diameter 11 times larger. Since we are talking about volume, having a diameter 11 times larger would mean Jupiter has 1330 times the volume of Earth (remember the formula for the volume of a sphere is V=4πr³/3).
    To me, when talking about size differences I would refer to the volume, not diameter/radius´s length, or you could specify it as they did with Sirius A: "With a radius 1.7 times that of the Sun" (= 4.9 times the volume of the Sun).
    This made me confused, I think it would have been better to specify it (as they did with Sirius A (radius *1.7) or Gacrux (radius *84)) or talking about the volume instead.

    I think I remember vsauce speking about adding loads of water to our sun to asnwer the question if we could extinguish our sun if we just had enough water. The result seems to most people a bit counter-intuitive since it wouldn't extinguish the sun if we even added the mass of the sun in water to it ... rather it would get hotter and the lifespan would decrease.
