there's nothing wrong with being the tiniest or almost invisible. remember that the universe was a singularity. all those big things that you see was a single particle/object/whatever.

so these earthlings can make sense of the largest star in existence? how do you put the concept of that star in their heads? a wonder if you tell me.

A neutron star (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_star) is the remnant of a supernova explosion. Such stars are composed almost entirely of neutrons.

A typical neutron star has a mass between 1.35 and about 2.1 solar masses, with a corresponding radius of
about 12 km

A neutron star is so dense that one teaspoon (5 millilitres) of its material would have a mass over 5 trillion
kg (In Layman's terms...fucking heavy...or...about 4.5 million Jumbo Jets). The force of gravity is so strong that
an object falling from just one meter high would take a microsecond to hit the surface but at around 2,000
kilometres per second, or 4.3 million miles per hour.
