Message Subject Betelgeuse is dimming
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
It takes about 642 years for the star's light to get to Earth so any sign that it might be going supernova that we are seeing now, actually happened in 1377.

'If Betelgeuse goes supernova, the blast will take 20,000-100,000 years to reach us

dood, wasting time discussing this
not gonna happen in our lifetime
so who gives dafuq?

blast, but not gamma rays (with light speed).
 Quoting: FoxyLab

dude, 642 light years away
at light speed it will take 642 years anything to reach us
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 57897053

And if it blew up 642 years ago we shoulg get the blastwave any time.
