Today in OHMYFUCKINGGOD
In yet another uplifting CNN.com 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!
