Will supernova affect us earth?
- ไม่เป็นไรLv 73 weeks ago
It could if it was close enough. Although they would be spectacular to look at, were these "predictable" supernovae to occur, they are thought to have little potential to affect Earth. It is estimated that a Type II supernova closer than eight parsecs (26 light-years) would destroy more than half of the Earth's ozone layer.

Not as long as that supernova confines it to this sub section.

Depends on how close the star that goes supernova is to Earth. Betelgeuse may already have game supernova. The GMA rays,and ultraviolet radiation could strip off Earth's ozone layer, but Betelgeuse is 640 to 684 light tears from Earth.

If the sun explodes, yes. If the second closest star explodes, no.
