Deadly Gamma Ray Burst headed our way from Rogue star , Could wipe out 1/4 of our ozo

Potentially lethal gamma-ray burst from star WR 104 could reach earth
Published May 28, 2013

Earth may lie in the path of a dangerous gamma-ray burst that could wipe out a quarter of our atmospheric ozone.

Astronomers say WR 104, a Wolf-Rayet star about 8,000 light years away, could go supernova any day, which would generate gamma-rays that could reach earth.


'You would first notice a 10-second blue flash in the upper atmosphere, but then the damage would be done.'
- University of Kansas physicist Adrian Melott

"We could see it go supernova anywhere from tomorrow to 500,000 years from now," astronomer Grant Hill told Forbes. "For all intents and purposes, the gamma-ray burst and optical photons from the supernova would arrive simultaneously."Gamma-ray bursts are triggered by supernovae, or exploding stars.

There has been much debate over whether a gamma-ray burst from WR 104 would reach earth, but Dr Hill said it depended on the star's rotation.

"If you look at WR 104 and the image of its pinwheel, it really is a visceral and powerful argument that the thing is face on with an inclination of zero," Dr Hill said. This would mean earth was directly in the line of fire from the star.

University of Kansas physicist Adrian Melott told Forbes such a gamma-ray burst would cause a 50 percent increase in UVB radiation.
"You would first notice a 10-second blue flash in the upper atmosphere, but then the damage would be done," he said.

WR 104 was discovered by University of Sydney astronomer Peter Tuthill in 1998.





We are gonna be totally toasted . I wouldn't plan on it happening in 500,000 years . You should go underground NOW !

No, they don't travel faster than the speed of light, for a couple of reasons.
  1. NOTHING travels faster than the speed of light.
  2. Optical Photons ARE light.
Gamma Rays travel at the speed of light. If the star (not planet) went supernova 8,000 years ago, then we actually could see it happen tomorrow, and the gamma rays would arrive at the same time.

So it's certainly possible that this could happen soon enough to matter to anybody, but given the upper limit of 500,000 years for it to happen, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

In the realm of, "There's not a damn thing we can do but enjoy the fluorescent blue light show" I'll shrug this one off and hope the thing took longer to go super nova than the number of years I have left to live. I'm also buying stock in as much sun screen tomorrow as is humanly possible. Get oh the boat (yeah) Banana Boat (yeah) ...

Can't we build some kind of big ass umbrella? Put it in orbit and shield the earth? We have between 1 day and 500,000 years to figure this out...come on people!!
