    It would be like BOOM CRASH but silent because it's in space
    I'm just waiting for it to go supernova. Hopefully sometime soon. It should be visible from Earth, since it's pretty close (less than 100 light year, methinks)

    Betelgeuse- what do you have to say about this?
    This is hate speech and speculating on my explosion is insensitive and mean

    They say that Betelgeuse should explode within the next few centuries. Rigel too.

    You don't need to live for 600+ years to witness it exploding. It doesn't take 600+ years to explode, that's just how long it takes for causality to reach us from the event. Also, what do you mean "even with telescopes like hubble"? Telescopes don't increase light speed. Plus, Betelgeuse going bang would likely be a daytime visible event.
    lulz...I don't see how discussing basic astronomical concepts with somebody online is worth my time. read a physics book, or you're a fraud if you claim to be astronomically schooled....

    I'm claiming nothing. Just that if it already had, but more recently than it would take to reach us, we wouldn't know!
    That is a claim. If causality travels at light speed, then to us, it does happen as we see it.

    It takes 600 years for the lght to come to Earth. So if it did explode, you may not be alive to see it. You have no way of telling when it will, only in the chance that it happens in your lifetime.
    But that's the crux of my point. When we witness it is when it happens. It's not literally happening then we see it. It's happening as we see it because causality only travels at the speed of light.

    How does one know if anyting explodes? It's by seeing light. It could explode at anytime, but then we would only really know after the fact.
    It wouldn't technically be after.

    Why would it be difficult to see in your lifetime based on its distance from us
    Unless it exploded 550 years ago, none of us are likely to see it.

    I know about causality, I was just saying it the way that avoids the arguments of those that don't.

    To us, yes. To Betelgeuse, it could have already happened.

    I hope it already has. It would be nice to see a supernova up close :moon:
