Subscribe
Scarcely a week passes without scientists discovering new “threats to humanity.” These threats are often considerably exaggerated and gladly spread by mass media. Meteorites hitting the Earth, exploding stars, fading Sun, you name it… Sergei Popov, Ph.D., senior research associate at the Sternberg Astronomical Institute, tries to separate the wheat from the chaff to find out where the real danger lies and what just the product of journalists’ fevered imaginations is. He also talks about magnetars – the most extreme form of neutron stars.
