The moment you've been waiting for, the Best Universe Size Comparison 2 Part 3! Click "show more" for the reason for this video being late and some notes in size determination.

Intro: Flixpress Music: Jocopa3

This took 4 months of work, 11 months of watiing. but why the wait? Here's why: When i finished part 2, it was part 3 time. I was unprepared, and still had to make the list. So I made it, on paper. The sizes were not in order. I started to make it, when I find out next morning: Error 0xc00000e9. I couldn't repair it. The options did not work. All that i had to do was: WAIT. I waited 1.5 months when I got a mac on December 22, 2012, 3 days before Christmas. I needed to download the things I needed and my games. About a week later, I tried and tried finding my list. But I knew it was gone. So this time, I was about to rewrite it in frustration, but an idea came. I wrote it on textedit. It was much more easier. Why? I could write the sizes in order. It took 2 weeks, I was unprepared (again.) I began working on it on summer in early July. I ended up at the 3,000,000 mark. There were a bunch of 1 million km stars (trust me) every day of work, when it was time for a break. I went back to work on September. I was rushing. I had exams and tests to work on. I wanted to become quicker. Luckily there were lesser and lesser stars to work on, each of them approaching the 1,000,000,000 mark. I hit 1,000,000,000 yesterday, at 10 PM. Now you know the history, enjoy the video!! :D

Now for a few notes. 1. UY Scuti: Error in size determination: ±192 solar radii. At the smallest, it would have a size similar to VX Sagittarii 2. VX Sagittarii: VX Sgr is a pulsating variable with a large visual range and varies significantly in size. 3. KW Sagittarii: According to Torres et al, 2013, it is smaller, with a size of 1009 ± 142 solar radii. 4. VY Canis Majoris: Once thought to be a star so large that it contradicted stellar evolutionary theory, improved measurements have brought it down to size 5. Forgot to include AH Scorpii. 1411 x Sun 6. VV Cep A is a highly distorted star in a close binary system, losing mass to the secondary for at least part of its orbit. 7. Forgot to include VV Cephei B. 8 x Sun 8. Westerlund 1-26: Very uncertain parameters for an unusual star with strong radio emission. The spectrum is variable but apparently the luminosity is not.
