A new sun — the new end of the world?

13.10.2011


The Earth will soon be a second sun and the world at night is as bright as day. So say the astronomers of the Observatory, located in Hawaii. They concluded that one of the nearest stars Betelgeuse in Orion should soon explode.


What we had to lose? In the worst case — the terrible disasters. To the side of the planet will go flux of gamma radiation. Auroras occur in places where they never existed. Some scientists predict that the powerful radiation will destroy the Earth's ozone layer. While this pessimism is not shared by all.

But when an explosion or astrophysics, astronomers do not know either. They say that this explosion will be visible to the naked eye and a half months. Then all humans will be able to enjoy the rare cosmic show.
