After reading it all, I guess it isn't as bad as I thought it was (the article). It'll be really cool when it happens (the super nova).

it better happen... it would also be mind blowing. think about it. if its as big as that picture depicts and its THAT FAR AWAY FROM us. that thing is like 100000000000000000000000000000 times bigger then our sun. i cant even comprehend that.

Wanna know something even more mind blowing? The light that we'd be seeing would actually hundreds of light years old, this star would have died millions of years ago, and we'd just know that it went super nova in present day.

The lag time is about 1,300 years because the star is about 1,300 light years away.

Phil Plait is an awesome guy and I'm glad they added his comment at the end. This stuff isn't news. It has been long known that Betelguese will go supernova soon. And soon as in soon relative to the lifetime of stars, not the lifetime of peoples or civilizations. Saying we might have a "twin sun" in 2012 is akin to saying we might have a major earthquake at 6:00pm this coming Friday, in terms of probability and prediction.

I guess I could defend this article. The hook of the article is terrible, but the content is actually good as far as scientific illiteracy goes...so I guess it's a good article in a sort of "the means justifies the end" kind of way. I've grown to like it, as retarded as it is. I've change my perspective in a positive way.

By the way, if you ever see a flash in the sky as bright as the sun...get ready to die a fucking slow and painful death unless you kill yourself. This one won't be that bright, but if there is one that is...it'll suck. It'll probably fuck up the atmosphere and then life won't be protected from the sun's UV radiation.

I'm not really sure how it would work if you went underground. Of course if you had some sort of radiation-safe shelter set up with a huge supply of food and necessities I suppose you would be fine. I wouldn't be surprised if some people survived.

Those things are really far away, and most are too far away to have any real effect. They do release ridiculous amounts of energy though, so even if one happens like a thousand trillion miles away it can have a noticeable impact. If it was like a million trillion miles away then it wouldn't really do anything though. Supernovas and the like are really rare anyway, relatively speaking.

Yeah pretty much. I think a small fraction of them might interact with atoms and create heavier elements. I don't know too much about it though. It would be a pretty minor effect I think.
