The Most Devastating Solar Storms in History are Scoured Into Tree Rings

   28 Oct 20:00:16  |  Universe Today

Trees are like sentinels that preserve a record of shifting climates. Their growth rings hold that history and dendrochronology studies those rings. Scientists can determine the exact ages of trees and correlate their growth with climatic and environmental changes. But they also record the effects of more distant changes, including the Sun’s activity. Carbon is …

How Dangerous are Nearby Supernovae to Life on Earth

   26 Oct 20:00:17  |  Universe Today

Life and supernovae don’t mix. From a distance, supernovae explosions are fascinating. A star more massive than our Sun runs out of hydrogen and becomes unstable. Eventually, it explodes and releases so much energy it can outshine its host galaxy for months. But space is vast and largely empty, and supernovae are relatively rare. And …
