    Pretty cool... Its crazy how the only time frame they can predict is this week to 1 million years from now.

    I just think it was funny how they had to add 2012 in there with the nuetrinos.

    Shouldn't that had happened last year when the monoliths turn Jupiter into a second sun? :)

    Anyway, this has happened before several centuries ago. Actually, it wasn't bright enough to be a second sun, but it was a noticeable new star at night. The remnants of it is the Crab Nebula.

    I was quite surprised that they can predict it to be accurate to a year. Maybe the Mayan calendar predicted the end of the world on planets around that star. :)

    I remember this being predicted when I was kid. That was back in the 1980s. I love the 2012 nutjobs bringing up every old prediction like it's brand new.

    light travels at the same speed
    the possible time variant is due to the fact as they dont have rulers that can measure that far ;)

    Every year I wait for that ruler to come out at CES and every year I'm disappointed.

    #1 how do we know light travels at same speed everywhere in space..we can be told this but how do we truely know?

    #2 how did person 1 that you responded for come up with the number? Where does the info come from that says how far away this star is to use your speed of light theory?

    And on and on and on I can go... I can think with book smarts but I can also think with what if the person who wrote the book has no clue

    It would be reasonable to assume that before the book is published (and even after), the information in the book has been scrutinised to a fair degree by others that gives me confidence that the person who wrote the book has a clue.

    Well like I said I can go on and on but I will give one example

    History = his + story what about her story? Or the the person across the roads story?

    I mean come on how do we truely know especially space? How far has an actual man been into space to give yet again his-story we are relying on computers to tell us what's going on, abd who made these computers?

    We know because we've tested it in our area of space. There is nothing at all known to man that can alter the speed of light in a vacuum. It's a universal constant. The whole "how do we know it's the same everywhere" article is just ridiculous. By that logic we don't know anything. By that logic I don't know that the Earth is round. When was the last time someone really went all the way around the Earth. It could be flat in some places and round in others. We haven't gone all the way around the Earth at every single latitude and every single increment in between. Therefore we don't know that the Earth is really round. The view from space could simply be an optical illusion. It's a crazy argument.

    It should prove to be a spectacular event to witness but I don't think you need to run out tomorrow for additional sun block.
