Scientists believe they have understood when the sun will go out / explode thanks to a better understanding of nuclear reactions and fusion.
Some smart clogs at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Harvard College Observatory and the Center for Astrophysics have undertaken complex calculations to determine when the Sun will decide to give way, as reported by the Daily Star.
Thanks to new research, scientists have determined that our sun is “middle aged” and not, before asking, just because he is wearing socks and sandals.
Paola Testa is one of the very smart scientists working on the project and explained how new discoveries in recent years have made it easier for them to calculate when disaster is expected to occur.
He said: “Much of the science is relatively new, as in the last century, because an integral part of understanding how a star works comes from understanding nuclear reactions and fusion.
“Before the 1930s, one of the main ideas about how stars worked was that energy came only from gravitational energy.
“By bringing together a lot of different information from many different stars, astronomers and astrophysicists could build a model for the evolution of stars.
“This gives us a pretty accurate estimate of the age of the Sun.”
Don’t worry though, it won’t be anytime soon and we can still complain about the heat for two weeks of the year.
Thus, it has been revealed that the end of the Sun will occur in about five billion years.
Clearly enough, neither of us will be around by then and be able to put it on our Insta stories.
More recently, however, it was discovered that a huge asteroid is expected to fly “close” to Earth early next year.
