If the information came from Weekly World News, then it must be true! But I can see a typo already. The so-called editors & proofreaders left off about 9 zeros off at the end of that number "6".  Wink/being sarcastic Regards.

Sure that is correct. Or hopefully it is correct that the sun will explode in six years.

The sun is a constant explosion and has been so for four and a half billion years. Only kept together by its own immense gravity forces.

It will explode in six years and seven years, and many billion years to come. Anyway in just one or two billion years time the explosion will have grown in intensity so the planet Earth will no longer be a pleasant place for humans.

Scientists are already dreaming up ways how they with huge rockets can direct an asteroid into a close encounter with the Earth in such a way that its gravity can pull the Earth to a greater speed around the sun, so it finds a new orbit at a slightly greater distance from the sun.

It will have a slight side effect. We will have to reinvent the Roman Empire so the emperor can write up a new calendar system. Otherwise we would soon run out of leap years.

What about having 13 months a year? 13 salaries instead of just 12, it sounds promising, doesn't it? And it will still be Christmas every year.

56 weeks instead of 52 also means four more week-ends when we can play FS 2002 all day long. Well, at that time Bill Gates will probably have forced us to upgrade to FS 2000002002 (two billion and two thousand and two).

Well Jj, why so pessimistic?

You could have four more weeks holiday instead.

You see, a lot of developments can take place over a timespan as long as two billion years.

For instance it might be possible that Microsoft happens to invent a new Windows XXXXXXXP which doesn't crash. Just imagine how much work it would save you! How much more efficient your workday would be - four weeks more holidays, no problem.

btw. This scientist obviously hasn't heard of a 'solar flare' before has he?

When that time does come- in another 1 billion or so years i think that we should abandon Earth altogether. By that time Mars should be terraformed and teeming with organic life(plants, trees, lakes, rivers). Once we melt the polar ice caps we can have liquid water on Mars and then we just gotta figure out a way to heat the planet up a little. Mars is where our collective futures lie and we should concentrate on getting humans there ASAP.

When the sun will explode, in a few billion years, it won't just burn the earth and stop his BS. I guess Mars won't be much better to live on. Perhaps on Pluto, if we are lucky.

Gosh! What if they manage to shoot the planet away from the sun before it explodes?!? All airplmnes airborne on the back side of earth will feel kinda lonly after mother earth just runs away and leaves them lost in space while the planes on the front side will be in heavy sh** because they won't have enough time to find a runway to land but will be surprised that it is not them loosing altitude but earth gaining it... Lucky ones on the side of earth... They will at least be able to see everything happen before they join the planes on the back side...

"The Sun Will Explode In Less Than Six Years!"

Bull. Even if it were true that news paper could have been smarter in NOT grouping gossip with news.

It's been reacting for 4 billion years it'll be another four billion at the most, you can tell by it's color. In Physics we learned that color o flight ( by wave lengths) and temperature are porportional. Either:

1) The dimmer it gets the less reaction are going on and therefore the sun will impolde via it's own gravity (28 times that of earth) - becoming a black hole.

2) The brighter it gets means that it reacts too much and it's gravity gets weak enough to let out the natural nuclear fusion setting off a supernova. Crap will shoot outwards at near the speed of light.

Prebennorholm, you can check my accuracy, if any.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

Let's get a few facts straight here. The sun is NOT going to explode- not now not ever. The reason is because our sun simply is not large enough(not enough mass) to go supernova like some larger stars do. Instead our sun is destined to become first a Brown dwarf and then a Black Dwarf. In approx 4-5 billion years time our sun's Hydrogen supply will finally be depleted and it will expand to become a RED GIANT. This process will engulf and vaporise Mercury, Venus and possibly Earth. The sun will remain a RED GIANT for a few thousand years before shrinking down to first a Brown Dwarf and then a dead Black dwarf(about the size of our moon and producing no energy, no heat and no light whatsoever)- essentially a metallic ball of rock, but still retaining it's gravitational influence on all the planets. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and possibly Earth will continue to orbit this "dead sun" for eternity. Our sun will NOT become a black hole simply because it isn't big enough(not enough mass). To become a black hole a star must first go supernova and our sun will not do that so it will NOT become a black hole unlike other massive stars which can become black holes when they explode.

The sun exploded yesterday too, and we all lived. Just refer to Prebennorholm's first post.

If it really were to exploded massively(aka the whole thing falls apart), I wouldn't complain one bit, it would be cold everyday, and that's the way I like it  Smile.

The main thing we need to worry about in regards to the sun is solar storm. Everytime time the sun hits solar maxiumum(approx every 11 years) the Earth is bombarded by cosmic rays causing the very impressive Aurora displays near the polar regions. These solar flares/coronal mass ejections are proof that our sun is not stable at all but very very active. We are actually at a solar maximum at the moment hence the Auroral displays that are currently being seen in unusual locations- i.e Midwest USA/Europe and even southern parts of Australia are currently seeing Auroras.

Actually it's supposed to happen in something like 5 billion years...because there are stages of stars and the sun is still pretty young...when it becomes a bigger star (I forgot what that stage is called) it will blow us away...but it will still be there (it's supposed to double in size or something like that...
