Hi Robert,
You wrote:
"...The Flattest" star ever seen - Achernar (Alpha Eridani)... the exact shape of an M & M."
" ...one (scientist or not) should expect that almost any type of phenomena can and will happen."

Robert, are those "surprised" scientists saying that their current equations in mathematical physics do not predict such a star is consistent with predicted range of possibilities? Or are they saying it is a very rare phenomenon but within possibilities predicted by their equations?

Warm regards,
Mike
