  • Is Betelgeuse Ready To Go Supernova?

    Betelgeuse Is Acting Really Weird Right Now. Could It Be Ready To Go Supernova?

    If it does go supernova, it could be any time from now to 100,000 years.

      Good movie, good band.
      The Greek pronunciation for 'Gregg Marshall' is Zeus.

          I love the fancy names they come up with sometimes. The European Southern Observatory's VLT (or very large telescope) reminds me of the JARs in the Military (Just Another Rifle).

          Who comes up with these ideas?

              From the Betelgeuse article in Wikipedia.

              The traditional name Betelgeuse is derived from either the Arabic إبط الجوزاء Ibṭ al-Jauzā’, meaning "the armpit of Orion", or يد الجوزاء Yad al-Jauzā’ "the hand of Orion". In English there are four common pronunciations of this name, depending on whether the first e is pronounced short or long and whether the s is pronounced 's' or 'z'
