UCphTF9wHwhCt-BzIq-s4V-g

UY Scuti: It's the largest star that we've ever discovered. And if it were to replace our Sun, it would change a lot more than just the amount of sunscreen you'd have to put on. Like, how long would it take for our planet to orbit this massive star? What would that do to our seasons? And would we even survive a single orbit?


Take a deeper dive into What If episodes with the help from the world's top thinkers in science.
