The sun is going to explode!

In about 6 billion years, that is. This is a nice, must-read article for the non-scientists (or non-astrophysicists) in all of us; i.e. what to tell our kids when they learn in school (or from somewhere else) that the sun is going to explode and that all life as we know it will disappear. Did I say it's a must-read? Please read it!

While you're at it, check out the photo of the astrophysicist-author to the left of the article itself. And watch the video (also shown here) of the Crab Nebula!
