First off I will step out and say that Astromomy and Cosmology is not my bag! I am a Computer techie through and through but the other day I was on space.com and saw the coolest thing and was wondering where I can read more on it or if anyone here knew more about it They were talking about a star that was spinning sooo fast that is was starting to flatten out. IT was the most amazing thing! Did I read the article right or did I miss understand? Can that really happen? If so... are there other stars out there like that? What makes it pick up sooo much speed? Thanks!
