How about 2 Suns? By 2012

submitted on January 21, 2011 by orangearrows in "Member's Lounge"
Two Suns? Twin Stars Could Be Visible From Earth By 2012

Dr. Brad Carter, Senior Lecturer of Physics at the University of Southern Queensland, outlined the scenario to news.com.au. Betelgeuse, one of the night sky's brightest stars, is losing mass, indicating it is collapsing. It could run out of fuel and go super-nova at any time.

When that happens, for at least a few weeks, we'd see a second sun, Carter says. There may also be no night during that timeframe.

    Pretty cool. Maybe some of us will obtain super powers by way of this cosmic phenomenon. Cool

      I'm sorry but that "2012 is the end of the world" crap is getting very effing annoying. Guess what? Calendar's that we're using now will ONE DAY stop "moving forward".

      Considering how long ago the Mayan culture was, and that they had THEIR OWN calendar which some are now noticing because it's about to run out means THEIR CALENDAR IS ENDING. Oohh nooo.

      Does that mean the end of the world?
      NO

    UPDATE: To clarify, the news.com.au article does not say a neutrino shower could be beneficial to Earth, but implies a supernova could be beneficial, stating, "Far from being a sign of the apocalypse, according to Dr Carter the supernova will provide Earth with elements necessary for survival and continuity."
