I think it's safe to say we can quit worrying about the our Sun and what it does in 5 Billion years (give or take a billion) as this could happen here in much less time (1-2 Billion years) and who knows whats going on out there at 2 million mph which is fairly "brisk" :thumbsup:

Which I could run at 2 Million Mph be at the Sun in less than a Minute :flowers:.

Nice to know there is something else that could destroy you in Space, worse not knowing what it is. But hey we have only got the Sun, Asteroids, Gravity, Blackholes and Most Likely other Alien Species which may want to destroy us, so we've got a lot to choose from but can't be particular about which one :thumbsup:.

Wiki does know all it's like your Local Library a Wealth of Information even though it may not be the most reliable source in some cases.

True, but Wiki is a lot easier and faster than a library.

Technically I was talking about what is in Space, Nukes don't count they are what Countries are developing to kill each other, those I mentioned are about what could destroy us all from Space.

Nukes...are what Countries are developing to kill each other


Er, don't you mean "developing as a deterrent to hostile nations"

On topic: The article is quite interesting. The idea that there is very rapid dark matter flying around is quite terrifying. I have seen it happen before though, on LOST. :thumbsup:
