FTFA: "1 million years is the highest estimated time until the red supergiant star Betelgeuse explodes in a supernova. The tremendous blast is expected to be easily visible in daylight."


I think you all missed a very important point here- There will be a star named Betelgeuse?!

The future will be awesome

It was discovered before the year 89
not 1989, the year 89.

Does anyone else have panic attacks trying to contemplate this stuff? I'm not sure if it's my little brain trying to conceive of that amount of time or just that it reminds me of my mortality, but that's the kind of thing that makes me jump out of bed in the middle of the night.

(It also reminds me of a bit in Louis C.K's old HBO show that made me laugh.)

I'd love to watch what happens in terms of evolution over the course of the next 100 million years. There'll probably be people saying "If monkeys evolved from humans, why are there there still humans? Seriously, why do we allow them to exist?"

That's a damned shame, since the only derp available, then, is the OCD Fark Liberal derp constantly whinging on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about the Fox derp. It's boring, seriously.

At least the Fox Derp occasionally varies from Official Script. But, apparently, there are few independent or original thinker in the 101st Fighting FLDB (Fark Liberal Derp Brigade).

FTA: "In 42,000 years, Alpha Centauri (pictured) becomes the nearest star system to the Sun once more, as nearby Ross 248 recedes.

Ummm,

The closest star is Proxima Centauri.

Ross 248 is number 8.

What the hell are they talking about.

It just makes me sad. Even if there is re-incarnation, or some such non-sense, even THAT will eventually end.

It's why I make sure I watch something funny on netflix before bed. It was real bad a few years ago before I realized, if I'm bored/alone before going to sleep, I get all entropy-y?

Sweet Jesus. Does every thread have to become a "FoxNewsJesusDerp Sucks" circlejerk? Yeah, parts of the article were cut-and-pasted from Wikipedia (didn't verify that, but have no cause to doubt it). You get what you pay for. Welcome to the sad state of journalism in the 21st century. It's still an interesting piece.

What I found fascinating was the last slide, the decay and then end of all matter in the universe. A great ending of things. Raises a whole assload of existential questions.

Stop being pissed at science for not aborting you. Instead, thank a scientist(the doctor) that pulled your screaming, horned, half demonic whelp ass out of your poor, horrified mother.

Just because right wing farks like you sit around and pray for the world to end, like a bunch of sick farks.

Oh my, hit a sore spot, did we?

You're pretty far gone (saw at least 3 scripted memes in your response) on the road to total Pavlovian stimulus/response but THERE IS HELP! And you can do it BY YOURSELF! I know that's a bit scary, but YES YOU CAN! Every morning, just after you wake up,find a scrap of paper and scribble "I AM AN INDEPENDENT THINKER" on it with a pencil or crayon. Put it deep into your pocket, where only you can touch it. Every time you are tempted to respond to a post by someone who you consider to be a troll (because they are saying something that is obviously Wrong and Bad) just touch the paper with your fingers and think about thinking without guidance from your trainer. Seriously, it works!

That's interesting. What's the source, I'd like to look into that further.

Also, I've heard mention elsewhere that the Oort Cloud may actually *share* material with a similar cloud around Alpha Centauri. The Oort Cloud has always fascinated me, ever since I read "Starchild." Any good sources on the Oort Cloud and, specifically, possible sharing?

Thanks

ZOMFG! A government agency? This means that believing in Jebus means that you should not be trusted with any technological or authoritative decisions. Atheism should be a litmus test for all private technical management positions, and ALL government employment, at any level. Seriously.

Nem Wan: bighairyguy: Looks like we only need wait out global warming for about 50,000 years.

And 600 million years from now, maintaining complex natural life on Earth will require sustained massive release of CO2 by some means to compensate for declining volcanic activity.

Otherwise, this biosphere is past its prime already. Eukaryotic life began 2 billion years ago and it has 1.3 billion years left unless it gets off this rock.
