Fires actual stars as ammo. Amazing!
Astronomers have for the first time found stars forming within the violent outflows of material ejected from a supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy. Stars are born under extreme conditions. Intense gravitational forces cause gas to collapse into a heated ball, until the pressure can be balanced with the outward …
or night light?
Staring up at our night sky is amazing. Can you imagine looking up at *that* light show from the outer edge of one of the arms of *that* galaxy?

... here on earth we're hyping cloud computing.
Anyways - as stars ignite when gravity is balanced with the outward radiation force, why are some stars much much larger than, say, our sun?
Could it be something with the conditions in which they're born - like being shot out of a star cannon or some equally awesome place, as opposed to peacefully accumulating stuff from a gas cloud and then igniting when the time is right?
