Abstract: The formation of massive stars has always been one of Jack's scientific interests. For old people, this is easy to understand. It is because massive stars are bright, and easy to detect with little interferometers, which might have only one baseline. For tough guys and gals, this is also easy to understand. Low-mass stars are too simple, useful only for theoreticians to contemplate. High-mass stars will be where the important physics phenomena lie. All of Jack's friends know he has never been, and never will be, old, and he is tougher than he appears.
