Discovery of a very massive, isolated star in a nearby galaxy

Astronomy & Astrophysics is publishing the discovery of a very massive, isolated star in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The star VFTS 682 is 150 times more massive than our Sun and seems to be isolated and not a member of any rich star cluster, which is surprising since very massive stars are thought to form in the dense core of clusters.
