A dangerous event may occur in the Milky Way in the near future. A star, 8,000 light-years away from our planet, is on the verge of a massive supernova explosion. This can lead to a gamma ray burst, the first example of the Milky Way.
The star was named. The God of Chaos ”and could create a dangerous energy event. For those who do not know what a gamma ray burst is, it is a combination of gas and dust with a wind that can reach 12 million km / ph. After the Big Bang, it would be the most extreme second energetic event.

Scientists who discovered it came from the University of Sydney and used the Anglo-Australian Telescope and the Very Large Telescope of the Atacama Desert in Chile, with the help of researchers at the University of Edinburgh, the University of Sheffield and the University. New South Wales. You can read all the findings published in siniz Nature Astronomy bul magazine. This rare star is part of a system that contains another star. After the Egyptian Serpentine, the system is called Apep.
Each of the hundreds of two stars in orbit hears. However, only one of the stars appears in the bricks of a gamma ray burst. If that happens, the ozone could be destroyed by the Earth's atmosphere.
Scientists have told us not to panic because it is not targeted to our planet. However, they added that den they are not sure what the future is, Ancak so we may not be far from a catastrophic event.
Lar The system may decelerate sufficiently, thus exploding as a normal supernova instead of a gamma ray burst. But by the way, he told astronomers in the galaxy of a ring-shaped seat to a beautiful and dangerous physics that we had never seen before, aks explains Professor Peter Tuthill, research leader.
