The European Southern Observatory (ESO)'s Very Large Telescope has discovered the fastest rotating star ever. Located 160,000 light-years from Earth, it rotates two million km/h and is 100,000 times brighter than the Sun.
This star R136a1 in the Large Magellanic Cloud is a super-supergiant. It’s a different species of star and didn’t even exist in theory, prior to this discovery. The Sun would look like the Moon, in comparison.
