ok then the russians are uneducated to ...
Not at all. The article in the "bing" link was about that (past) exploded star. Article clearly said that it is relatively "close"....because
they estimate it occurred about 140 years ago. This means, it is somewhere around 140 LY away. That's "close" in terms of the ~100,000 LY
diameter of the Galaxy, but still not close enough to have any effect on us. The explosion of the star wasn't seen, in visible light spectra,
because of intervening dust clouds, in interstellar space. It is imaged, today by its X-rays, mostly. They can penetrate the dust.
.. my notice is that venus , jupiter increased in brightness about 300% in last 3 years....
That's quite a claim. Hasn't been much about it in any news I've seen. Of course, you must realize, that as we all orbit around the Sun, there
are periods when those other planets are a bit closer to the Earth (as the "interplanetary crow" flies) than at other times, so they
appear to be brighter.
...and a round object growing doesent resemble a supernova .
? True. Well, depends on many factors, tho...the Sun is a "round glowing object", by one definition. Not sure your point.
...guess the BP spill shouldnt be mentioned either....
Not really, since it has nothing at all to do with space, the planets, or supernovae.....it DOES have something to do with corporate clumsiness,
incompetence and corruption, though.
... there are multiple binary systems in the universe .
By "universe" I presume you mean within our Galaxy...since, the distances are very great to just the nearest next galaxy, and it's hard to
accurately determine the nature of those stars.
But, it IS
an interesting discovery, the many greater numbers of multiple star systems in our own Galaxy than had been previously theorized.
It helps those who are specialized in such things as refining their models and theories about star evolution, and star / planetary formation
