    all stars are born as twins, rather late after and from from the big bang, but any connection to the zero sum /universe out of nothing idea?

    I don't know about that but Horizon on the BBC was claiming (last night) that the first stars were far larger than the stars that developed later .

    Horizon: Cosmic Dawn - The Real Moment of Creation
    (maybe it is on the i-player)

    The programme was detailing efforts to explain how these first stars were able to overcome the obstacles to form aggregations of mass (it was apparently not as simple as waiting for gravity to do its work as there were counter forces at play)

    I think those first stars may have been something of the order of a hundred times larger than the later "iterations".

    Thanks, that's very interesting.

    I have the feeling some journalese has crept into the text. I suspect when they keep saying "egg-shaped" what they may mean is ellipsiodal. I wonder if the binary stars form at the two foci of the ellipse. But they don't say. Pity.
