Groundbreaking Rock Chalk Supernova Research Considers Mass Extinction On Earth

Call it old school climate change research or just something to consider when thinking about the big picture. Take a peek:

Research increases distance at which supernova would spark mass extinctions on Earth

University of Kansas researcher Adrian Melott, professor of physics and astronomy, supported those findings in Nature with an associated letter, titled "Supernovae in the neighborhood."
