'One size fits all' when it comes to unraveling how stars form

A massive star, 25 times the mass of the sun, is forming in a similar way to low-mass stars, astronomers have discovered. The research is one of the final pieces of the puzzle in understanding the lifetimes of the most massive and luminous stars, called O-type stars. These stars are major contributors to heavy element production in the Universe, such as iron and gold, which they eject into space in dramatic supernovae explosions at the end of their lives.
