no, it's not another elvis joke....

Obese stars are more common than expected

Observations of a nearby stellar nursery reveal an "astonishing" overabundance of gigantic stars with masses up to 200 times that of the Sun.

http://www.astronomy.com/news/2018/01/massive-stars-are-common

According to a study published today in the journal Science, the universe is teeming with many more massive stars than astronomers previously thought. Since massive stars play a crucial role in shaping our universe — through stellar winds, supernovae explosions, and the production of heavy elements — the excess of heavyweights has far-reaching implications.

Odd title. How can a star be obese? I guess the powers that want to be want to drive home the idea that the bigger the shorter lifespan which is definitely true with stars. Anyway - I can't imagine the massive star that made our solar system.
