The Impact Of Supernovae On Earth
The researchers discovered this effect by studying X-ray observations of 31 supernovae, seeing how far the impacts of these explosions can reach. NASA is quick to point out that we don't need to worry about being the victim of a supernova stripping our atmosphere, as there are no potential supernovas near enough Earth to be a concern. For reference, a relatively nearby star predicted to go supernova relatively soon is Betelgeuse, but that is located around 650 light-years away, so it's too far away to cause problems here.
But our planet could have been hit by an X-ray blast from a supernova in the past. “The Earth is not in any danger from an event like this now, because there are no potential supernovae within the X-ray danger zone,” said co-author Connor O'Mahoney of the University of Illinois. “However, it may be the case that such events played a role in Earth's past.”
The evidence for this comes from a particular radioactive type of iron that is absent from some places on Earth, suggesting that two supernovae could have occurred between two and eight million years ago. Such an X-ray blast could cause terrible damage to the food chain, particularly by affecting marine life. NASA even suggests that the effects could potentially cause an extinction event — but it also points out that there is no evidence linking past extinction events like the death of the dinosaurs to the known supernovae events.
NASA Chief Gives Serious Warning About Betelgeuse Star Explosion
(NEXSTAR) – Residents living in more than a dozen U.S. states have the chance to see the northern lights Sunday thanks to recent activity on the Sun.
A coronal mass ejection and a minor solar flare happened Friday night, according to NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center. In addition to sparking a geomagnetic storm watch through Monday, the solar activity means the northern lights will be visible as far south as Nebraska and Iowa.
Coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, are explosions of plasma and magnetic material from the Sun that can reach Earth in as little as 15 to 18 hours, NOAA explains. Slower CMEs, like the one observed Friday, can take days to impact us.
While both solar flares and CMEs (which can occur at the same time) can impact navigation, communication and radio signals on Earth, CMEs are able to create a stunning show in the night sky. According to NASA, CMEs can create currents in Earth’s magnetic fields that send particles to the North and South Poles. When those particles interact with oxygen and nitrogen, they can create auroras.
“When we see the glowing aurora, we are watching a billion individual collisions [between the particles and atoms and molecules], lighting up the magnetic field lines of Earth,” NASA writes.
While Canada and Alaska are forecasted to have the best viewing, Washington, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota may also see the northern lights Sunday night. Parts of Idaho, Wisconsin, Oregon, Wyoming, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine may as well.
Will you see the northern lights?
NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center is forecasting a quiet to moderate aurora for many northern states Sunday night.
The funny thing is I was working on a short story about In the year 2040, the world was on edge. Rumors had been circulating for months about an impending plasma event that was set to occur. Scientists and government officials had been monitoring the situation closely, but nobody could predict with certainty what was going to happen.
As the days passed, the world began to experience strange and unusual weather patterns. The skies were filled with ominous clouds, and the sunsets were a brilliant shade of red. People across the globe were in a state of panic, unsure of what was happening or how to prepare.
One night, as the world watched in awe, the northern lights began to appear over the skies of the United States. The colorful lights danced and swirled in the sky, creating a breathtaking display that left people in awe. As the lights grew stronger, it became clear that this was no ordinary aurora borealis.
Soon, news reports began to pour in from all over the country. People were reporting strange electrical phenomena, from power outages to lightning strikes. Some even claimed to have seen strange creatures emerging from the shadows. The world was in chaos, and nobody knew what to do.
As the days turned into weeks, the plasma event continued to escalate. The northern lights grew stronger and more vibrant, and the world began to realize that this was something much bigger than anyone had anticipated. But as the chaos continued, a group of scientists in the United States began to make a groundbreaking discovery.
Working in secret, these scientists uncovered evidence that suggested that the plasma event was not a natural occurrence at all. They believed that it was the result of an experiment gone wrong, carried out by a shadowy organization known only as “The Order.”
As the world watched in horror, The Order's true intentions were revealed. They had been working for years to create a weapon capable of harnessing the power of plasma, and the northern lights were just the beginning. With the world in chaos, they believed that they could seize control and create a new world order.
