Massive stars in our galaxy is shedding light on what happens in the final stages of a giant star's death.

3D map of VY Canis Majoris, a dying red hypergiant star located over 3,000 light-years from Earth.

Rare supergiant star loses mass is analogous to coronal arcs — loops of plasma that erupt from the sun
Using the Atacama Large
Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile, the team, led by University of Arizona researchers Ambesh Singh
Traced the Distributions and Velocities
Of molecules as they swirled around VY Canis Majoris and mapped them to structures of ejected material, extending to billions miles.
Ziurys Said in a Statement.
"Think of it as Betelgeuse on steroids, It is much larger, much more massive and undergoes violent mass eruptions every 200 years or so."
