    Do you like cosmos stuff but you’re not a physicist or cosmologist?
    Here’s a really nice video explaining in simple terms the incredible phenomena of supernovae.

    Sometimes we need to see the substance and overlook the style.
    I’ll see if I can find a Northern Irish version for you.

    There's some fantastic English made videos out there on the workings on the universe including supernovas which are very informative and interesting in a far less dramatized manner.

    @Earl-of-Trumps

    Most of what the astronomers say was in accordance with current Knowledge. However nobody knows what is happening at Betelgeuze. It is possible that it is thousands of years from cpollapse (or not, nobody knows).

    And of Course I am more or less a lay Person in astronomy… I think they oversimplified the way elements are made by fusion (and there I would claim a bit of expertship)

    Excellent video, informative and not too arcane.

    Since Betelgeuse is roughly 650 light years from Earth, the supernova display may have already begun.

    Indeed. We will. only know after the light will have arrived however.

    As far as I know nobody knows for sure, we still have a lot to learn.
