"Some of the stars are up to 120 times larger than the Sun. Their discoverers called them extreme in every way. They are born rapidly, live short but wildly luminous lives and will die explosively, likely forming black holes."

Wow, interesting...

As time goes on, will the numbers of extremely massive stars continue to decrease or not?
