How long can we survive if the sun went out?
"Within a week, the average global surface temperature would drop below 0°F. In a year, it would dip to –100°."

[link to www.popsci.com]

We could at least survive for a month I imagine, and this might be enough time for saturn or jupiter to ignite from the remaining energies.

This could also be what the 3 days of darkness is all about.

i have a suspicion it would be sooner , i think without the solar influence we would lose our magneto sphere and atmosphere in a few days/weeks after the sun went out.

Have to agree with you there. Hopefully wed have enough residual charge to last before a new sun takes its place or gets reignited again, if thats even possible or any of this for that matter.

If the sun wasnt there somehow and we arent destroyed by its nova, wed generally gravitate back to saturn or i guess jupiter first. Probably would take awhile if the distances arw correct, and wed have to contend with the asteroid belt in some fashion, not to mention the other planets or our own moon. Fuck.

They claim Indians came from the Bering Strait from Asia. The temperatures were in the -200 during that time 10,000 years ago.

Logic based on that would claim only true Native Americans could survive it. lol

Re: How long can we survive if the sun went out?
Gravity waves are as fast as light, so I would say we wouldn't even see the Sun going out. Cause we would be busy with the enormous effects as the Solar System becomes unstable as the huge mass loss kicks in. Without it's gravitation field, i doubt we would survive a minute, so its like 7-8 minutes, as the effects have to kick in.

Depends where you are! Close proximity to warm water oceans
I'd say 3 to 4 weeks. Inland location will quickly cool I'd give it 1 to 2 weeks. If one is stocked up with heating supplies, water, food, time would be extended for those folks.

A thousand miles inland, temps would be below freezing after 3 days, and never rebound.

On a small tropical island, it would not go below freezing for months.

The only thing making it tropical is the sun. Without sunlight weather systems would instantly crash and the oceans would be solid ice within days.

Its pretty standard ms science fare though that gravity propagates supraluminally i thought. It would be if relativity were true, bending space and all that nonsense.

The earth would turn into a solid block of ice pretty quickly. The outer portions would only take a few days to freeze completely. Maybe a few weeks for the molten core, but it would happen. Space is frigid without the warming rays of a celestial body.

No no no,
Hes not talking about it disappearing. Hes talking if the ignition went out but the mass is still there.
