In yet another uplifting article, scientists discuss the behavior of a white dwarf star similar to our sun. The last few sentences of the article are by far the best:

“Astronomers believe the sun in perhaps 5 billion years will go through the same process, ending up as a white dwarf.

“UCLA astronomer Benjamin Zuckerman said when our sun starts to expand in size and lose mass, the planets closest to the sun, Mercury and Venus, will get engulfed and destroyed. Other planets, probably including Earth, and the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, will spiral out of their orbits, Zuckerman said.”


Happy Friday, everyone!

    Oh man… not for another 5 billion years?!

    The wait for this to happen will be worse than the wait for the release of the Special Edition ‘Who’s Your Caddy‘ DVD.

    Sooooo, you’re saying I should start buying up as much ammo as I possibly can and start premptively firing it at the sun.

    Got it.
