What are star clusters?
Star clusters are groups of stars that have the same origin and are bound together by a gravitational bond for some time. This helps astronomers to study about stellar evolution and ages. There are two types of star clusters, open clusters and glob
Which is the largest star in the Milky Way?

How much solar mass must a remnant have to become a black hole?
A black hole, in the theory of general relativity, can be composed of any mass. If the mass is low, the higher the matter's density has to be in order for a black hole to be created. There are no known processes that can produce black holes with mass
