  • Context. The increasing number of observed supernova events allows for finding the progenitor star even more frequently in archive images. In a few cases, the progenitor star is a yellow supergiant star. The estimated position in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram of these stars is not compatible with the theoretical tracks of classical single-star models. Aims. According to several authors, the mass-loss rates during the red supergiant phase could be underestimated. We study the impact of an… CONTINUE READING
