Massive stars influence their environments very strongly. Understanding these stars, and populations of them, from birth to death elucidates many key processes of our origins, such as the cycle of star birth and galaxy evolution, and the origin of the elements. To study hot stars we use optical/infra-red spectroscopic and automated transient surveys. We use the observations to improve our theories on the role of stellar winds, internal mixing processes and binary interaction.
