Hello, i read on the internet that a dutch scientist claims the sun will explode in less than 6 years.
Is that possible?
I always thought the sun cant go supernova.
And eventually when it dies that its billions of years from now.
6years is quite a difference from billions of years

Can you provide us with the link to your source? Anything could happen at this point. They might even find the unicorns being repopulated somewhere on Earth!

Uh.. off topic, but check out this Unicorn found in Italy. It's real as far I can tell.

I dont know about the sun going Supernova, I suppose it is possible, but there always exists a possibility for a catastrophic event like the huge emission of plasma towards earth. It would be just as bad imo.

His name apparently is Dr. piers van der meer, it can be googled and articles will pop up
Here is one.

BUT i just found this(below), so MODS can close the thread if they like...Sorry.

However i DO have one question, Can the sun go supernova or is it too small?

Here is was I can remember from the topic:
I believe the point of the scientist was that the explosions on the sun are aggravating in time, with each explosion circumstances on the sun alter and allow for more and bigger explosions. Following these explosions on the sun, the earth will experience a warming up of the climate and the evaporation of the water on the earth.

Long before the sun will implode, and the destruction of the earth will be a collateral damage site effect of that event, the climate on earth will no longer allow live as we know it.

I do not recollect the time frame they stated, but I do recollect thinking that my grate grand-children would be around at the time that the climate change would begin to have major impact on live.

I will try to find some more info and will post it here if I find it

This scientist is an idiot at best. The is heating up because it is part of it's cycle. It cools a little then heats up. Why? I don't know.

According to science the sun will not blow.

If you can find a link, i would appreciate it.
I would like to read up on that.

No doubt in my mind that is a possible scenario. I'd say NASA better get busy to create a lifeboat, and find us some new digs. A heavy solar event evaporating the water on this planet is plausible.. oooh that doesnt sound good, does it?

Anything is possible well nearly anything,BUT!


The sun cannot go supernova, because its mass is less than the Chandrasekhar mass (approximately 1.4 suns) and it has no way to gain mass. However, in a few billion years, the sun should expand and become a red giant, scorching the inner planets to a crisp.

The earth would be engulfed in its overwhelming heat and we my friend will be charcoal

The Major once read a story claiming that in six years that all things posted on the internets would be true and factual. The article went on to laud the coming of well reasoned, researched and scholarly discussion on the various BBS and internet forums. The Major has in recent years resigned himself to the fact that article was rather bold in it's predictions, alas, it may just be a few more years until mankind reaches the goals set forth by the IGY.

As for the sun exploding, it was in the Hot Sheets.

Dismissed.

I'll wait until NASA make their announcement before jumping to any conclusions but I'd think we would have more warning than six years do we even know enough about stars to make predictions like that.

I find the scenario rather unlikely I think we will either have centurys of notice or no notice at all depending on how it goes.

If the sun was to actualy blow up, that woudl no boubt be a nightmare situation.

if the world is going to end like this, well, it could be alot worse.


We will get about 7 minutes to say our goodbyes, have some fun before we are complete toast, and then it'll all be over in a few seconds (im assuming).


(im also assuming that if the sun exploded we would have about 7 minutes as thats how far away from the sun we are in light minutes , and teh explosion cant go faster than that can it?)

Actually if its 7 minutes that could mean it blew up 7 minutes ago and we wouldn't know about it till right now.

That's the reason I suspect we would have no warning at all the amount of time it takes the light/explosion to get here.

Didn't I read somewhere that for the first time in many years there hasn't been any sun spot activity seen on the sun?
Maybe its just like here on Earth! Maybe the people who control the sun are using energy saving bulbs to keep the cost of heating the solar system down. . ? I knew it. Its that Gordon Browns fault!

EEEEEK!

i never thought of it that way, by the time we see it explode we coudl already be wiped out .. (wow, i ve burned my head out again with a paradox).

how much of a kick in the nutz would that be! we get destroyed by the blast yet still see the sun their before the blast!


EDITEd to add - if anyone wants to blame gordon brown for the sun exploding, ill deffinitely join that bandwagon even if it is a complete lie hahaha.

Perhaps we are already toast and we just don't realize it. Every feel like you are living in a dream world? Maybe we are just moving to and fro, trying to correct certain lies that occurred.. in order to correct the historical records.
True Lies, right? Thanks for the nostalgic video Major!

in actuality its gonna split in two.. and then three will be no such thing as night and day .. as one will be on one side of the earth.. and the other on the opposite side.. creating a perfect world, with both suns warming keeping the earth at a moderate 70 degrees, enabling us to grow food year round at all parts of the earth.. it will be a regular friggin utopia.

This thread is not a joke, and i WAS seriously asking if the sun could explode.
After finding the article i posted that this so called dutch scientist does not exist i no longer have any questions regarding his claims.

However, stating the sun will split in two, clearly is making a joke of this thread.

I was asking for serious MATURE replies.

I believe that in order for a star to "supernova" it has to be something on the order of 4.5 times, or more, larger than our little dinky sun.

Our star is destined to go out with a whimper, as a white dwarf star gradually fading to a little black ember. No explosian, other than coronal mass ejections as it collapses into it's dwarf state.

Some one a bit more knowledgable can probably state it a bit more correctly, but that's the jist of it...

If the sun goes supernova (against all odds), we can't do absolutely anything about it. Some of us would see a bright flash of light for a moment, and the rest of the world would pass away peacefully in their sleep.

I believe that instead of worrying of our sun turning into a supernova (or even a nova), we should be concerned of the possible magnetic pole reversal of our own Earth. This phenomenon has been predicted to happen in the near future, and there has already been some signs of it being in progress.

The magnetic poles are moving faster than ever during the recorded history, and there are reports of recently born local anomalies in the Earth magnetic field e.g. in South America if I recall correctly. If the poles continue to change, there will probably be a period of time when there are no defined magnetic south and north poles in Earth. This will result in higher levels of cosmic rays arriving to Earth, as the Van Allen radiation belts will change and our magnetosphere will no longer be protecting us in the same way as it used to be. This can result in lost lives or at least a shortened lifespan for us Earth's inhabitants.

Currently the cosmic rays arriving to Earth create auroras only in the polar regions that are not very strongly protected by Earth's magnetosphere. If nothing else, in the future (if and when the polar reversal occurs) there will be very brightly visible auroras also closer to the equator. I myself am prepared to see some very nice-looking light shows in the night sky! It's the only thing I can do, even if it were the last thing in my life.


I always tend to think positive, what comes to larger-than-life cosmic events.
