  • At present, there is no way to secure the earth in the event of a super nova. However the event is not predicted for billions of years. As the day approaches, if man is still alive, we will find a way.
  • The Sun will not go supernova. It is not big enough to do this. The minimum size for a star to go supernova is about eight times the mass of the Sun. The main danger to Earth is that, as the Sun begins to run out of hydrogen to fuse, it will grow into a red giant and swallow Earth. (Even if the Sun were to go supernova, it would still have to pass through a giant phase first. So, Earth would not survive to see the supernova.)
