If Beatleguice(sp?) were to go Supernova we'd be safe. If it were to go into a Hypernova however, that is a much different story... Hypernova's supposedly rip apart whole galaxies.

Man I was just watching the science channel and they showed what would happen to earth if a super nova went off 300 Light years away and it was horrific. They said it would pretty much be like atomic bombs going off over the entire side of earth facing the blast. Firestorms, tidal waves just about every destructive force you could think of with massive amounts of Gamma raidiation
They said the odds of that happening in the next million or so years is really remote though. Still makes me wonder how many species out in the universe ended like that.
