"Compact stars last forever" announces one heading boldly. Sure? Really? AFAIK black holes are believed to evaporate in the end. And beside that: this is a boring encyclopedia where bold newspaper headings aren't appropriate. A neutral heading such as "lifetimes" would be more appropriate. ... said: Rursus (bork²) 20:24, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
I came here looking to learn something; that is, I am NOT an expert in the field and don't feel comfortable changing stuff here. Still, even to this non-expert, the line in the first paragraph "These objects are all small for their mass." seems completely the opposite of what is intended, especially when it is followed by "... it is very massive and has a small radius". Would somebody who DOES know something make just the first paragraph make sense? Chopbox (talk) 00:56, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm no expert either, but I think it's OK. Perhaps have a look at the article on mass? Rothorpe (talk) 01:32, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Small by volume but with a high mass. "Small" normally refers to volume, not mass, I think, but I said volume explicitly in the sentence which confused you. —Alex (ASHill | talk | contribs) 21:09, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
