"That is the coolest shit ever. Wow. Earth is an insignificant speck of dust." LOL hardly. In fact its the only celestial body we know of that has life, let alone intelligent life. Thats significant as hell. Im hardly suprised that rather than appreciating an awesome thread like this, the usual band of idiots try and start anti-Christianity or nihilist bullshit. And yes, all that matters is size. Because the nation that has thousands of acres of wood to burn is clearly superior to the nation that uses grams of plutonium for energy. BTW, Ive been marking out on Betelgeuse lately for some reason.

"Theoretically you could have a massive planet with a star orbiting it." After a certain size fusion starts, no matter what its made of, and it becomes a star. I think the best theories have it at like 90 Jupiter masses, but things with 70-90 Jupiter masses could really be a planet or a brown dwarf, depending on how it was made.

Just remember that big dogs die young. Stars that size die spectacularly. Sol will outlast them.

""How big can an actual planet with it's own atmosphere get? Does it depend on the size of the star it's orbiting?"" Some planets, like Jupiter, are really all atmosphere. They are known as gas giants.

Jupiter & Saturn are gas giants but does that mean they have no solid mass (surface)....so effectively a comet could just pass straight through them? The Shumaker / Levy comets didnt pass through Jupiter afew years back so they must of impacted something or was it just dense atmospere?
