About Red Supergiant stars

Red Supergiant stars logo

A red supergiant is an aging giant star that has consumed its core's supply of hydrogen fuel. Helium has accumulated in the core, and hydrogen is now undergoing nuclear fusion in the outer shells. These shells then expand, and the now cooler star takes on a red color. They are the largest known stars.
