Implement Westerlund 1-26
« on: January 09, 2016, 01:54:27 PM »
Hello,

so i just found out that Westerlund 1-26 is the biggest Star in our Universe,
it would be interesting to experiment with it! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westerlund_1-26

Would it be possible to put it in the game?

I looked it up, made it in-game, and I don't think it is the biggest, UY Scuti is larger. But it would be cool to have more big stars!

well Westerlund is about 1500 solar radii, while UY Scuti is (i think) about 2100 times the radius of our sun.

Here's Westerlund 1-26, it is 1530 sun radii, and likely has a mass of 10 suns.
Just download it and place it in the Bodies folder and run the program, you'll see it in the User Objects section.

i looked it up again... we aren't sure, if it is bigger than UY Scuti... it has an estimated radius of 1500 to 2000 (or smth. like dat) Solar radii
