The hottest brightest stars in are B-class stars, which tell us that this cluster, although young, has actually been around for quite some time: at least 80 million years. The highest mass stars burn through their fuel the most quickly, & die in catastrophic supernovae explosions, leaving behind black holes &/or neutron…
