What Is The Power Output Of A Super Nova?

Fri Jan 13, 2006 6:50 am

Like say we were a light year away from an imminent nova, lay out a giant magnetic solenoid so any moving and probably ionized particles create current through electromagnetics.

I know, hypothetical if not impossible to determine.

Well, I know a guy with a 67 SS with a stroked 283ci V-8 that puts out around 400bhp....but that's certainly not factory.

I think the L-79, the small block 327ci V-8 came from the factory with around 350bhp.

Either way it was alot of engine for the car.....too bad they never caught on in Mexico.

Having read Bill Bryson's book about nearly everything, you have to be at least 10 light years away from it otherwise you'd be toast, and second you'd never know it was going to happen until it suddenly went very bright one day. Then it would be too late.


If you did want to prepare for it then I'd imagine that if there were enough particles to create a meaningful supply of energy you'd be cooked anyway. Ideally the magnetosphere at the top of the atmosphere would deflect any particles to the poles. Great auroras though.

Didn't Chevy also offer the 396 CID as an option in some Nova SS packages?

I believe so. And the power output was sufficient for my brother to get airborne at Sugarloaf Hill on California highway 1.

Back on real topic: Isn't the power of the nearby Sun sufficient? You must be planning some bodacious lab experiment!
