great article enjoying it so far. One point:

In paragraph 2, under history, it says that "a star existed with a greater circumference than this critical circumference, no light would be able to escape". Actually, according to the definition in paragraph 1 of history, this should be "lesser circumference" b/c the escape velocity increases as circumference decreases. Right?
