Confidence in the models of stellar structure and evolution of massive stars depends on the accuracy with which their basic parameters can be measured. The key step consists in determining accurate distances. This parameter is also fundamental for the census of stellar populations in clusters and galaxies. In this context, massive stars are relevant, given their high luminosities. Sever...
A key ingredient missing from current formation and evolution theories of massive stars, and of cluster evolution, is a robust binary fraction and the intrinsic distributions of orbital parameters. The VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey (VFTS), which targeted 800 O- and B- stars in 30 Dor, was designed to detect most massive binaries with periods <200 d: the observed O-type binary fraction is ...
