Assuming that the physical 3-space t = const in a superdense star is spheroidal, a static spherically symmetric model based on an exact solution of Einstein's equations is given which will permit densities of the order of 2 × 1014 gm cm-3, radii of the order of a few kilometers and masses up to about four times the solar mass.
