The Shape Of Things To Come!!

Postby jsc248 » Thu Nov 12, 2015 8:38 am

Hi gang,

Astronomers at the VLT in Chile have had a glimpse of the far future of the Solar System. For the very first time they have seen the shattered remains around a white dwarf, named SDSS J1228+1040, which most astronomers believe will be the fate of our Sun in some four and a half billion years. Take a look at the news release here http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1544/?lang

John.
To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
