A comparison between the hypergiant star VY Canis Majoris, our Sun and Earth’s orbit.

VY Canis Majoris is so huge that if it was to replace our Sun here in the Solar System, its surface would stretch out beyond Jupiter's, or even Saturn’s, orbit.

Hypergiants like VY Canis Majoris are so massive, that they devour themselves at exponential rates. The amount of energy our Sun emits in year is equal to what a hypergiant would release in the matter of just 6 seconds. It is believed that VY Canis Majoris has already shed half of its original mass, and could literally reach hypernovae at any time, but some astronomers believe that the star has the capability to last nearly another 100,000 years.

"The moment a star runs out of fuel..."
That was just a simplification, to get your point across right?..

You can probably imagine an early universe without planets or stars — but what did the universe look like before time existed? This fall, you could find out by taking a free class led by prominent researchers at the University of Copenhagen. The course, available on Coursera, attempts to cover the entire history of the universe …

PSR J1748-2446ad is the fastest-spinning pulsar known, at 716 Hz.

Its radius is constrained to be less than 16 km. At its equator it is spinning at approximately 24% of the speed of light, or over 70,000 km per second.The pulsar is located in a globular cluster of stars called Terzan 5, located approximately 18,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Sagittarius

+Baljeet Singh​ in a sense, yes. 716 turns/sec. Is near the limit. Much higher and it would disintegrate.
It may never end that way, look at the mechanism that spins the star to such a high rotation rate.
Mass has fallen from another star in a shared orbit. That's where the angular momentum comes from. But there is an upper limit on the mass of a neutron star: above 1.4 solar solar masses, it would collapse into a blast hole.

A new three dimensional model of the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant provides insights into how these massive explosions occur.

The detailed model reveals a bubble-like interior of debris that connects with a bright shell of ejecta arranged in multiple circular structures.

Cassiopeia A was created 340 years ago when a massive star exploded to form a neutron star, making it a good subject for a cosmic post mortem.

People doing stupid things for just a bunch of +1/retweets/likes. SMH. Not sure if I should laugh or feel sorry for their families. At least I know they were not smart enough to graduate college.
