The strange object that is about to explode has the size of 764 of the Sun, is closer to Earth than imagined.

 New research has revealed the truth about the star Betelgeuse, the 12th brightest object in the Earth's sky and often opaque like a ghost.

The strange object named Betelgeuse has long been "fascinated" in the scientific world because of its erratic factors observed in recent years.  Most noteworthy is the confusing change in light, when showing, when suddenly dim for a while.  Scientists believe that is a signal that the star's energy is "flickering," and that it is about to end in life: it explodes into a supernova, then collapses into a white dwarf star.

 Previously, studies showed that this star was 600 light-years away from the Sun and could have a radius of 1,200 times that of the Sun.  But the authors from the School of Astrophysics and Astrophysics (the Australian National University) and the ASTRO 3D Center have made more standard measurements and revealing that the star has a size of only 764 of Sun and far from us only 548 light years which is closer than we imagined.

 Although the distance seems far away, scientists have not ceaselessly debated the possibility that the star will affect the Earth when it explodes, causing us to be affected by supernova radiation, by a unusual large star like that will explode terribly.

Once there is evidence that supernovae affect Earth's life, two recent American studies also show that the major extinction event killed 50% of the limbs on Earth's life tree as a result of explosions.  The supernova is 60 light years away.

 The enormous size and energy make Betelgeuse the 12th brightest star in Earth's sky, even though it is far away.  It can be viewed with the naked eye in the Orion constellation.

 According to Dr. Meridith Joyce, head of the study, they used hydrodynamic and seismic modeling to understand more about the physical effects that lead to the pulses of the star, which is what world observatories "catch".

 The work also provides evidence that Betelgeuse will explode soon - maybe 100,000 years from now, a long distance from human life but only a tick in the history of the universe.

 Understanding Betelgeuse also helps us predict the future of Earth.  It is estimated that 4-5 billion years from now, our own Sun will run out of energy and swell into a red giant like Betelgeuse, "swallowing" Mercury, Venus and Earth, then will explore too.
