According to Newsnpr, scientists predict that in 2022 there will be a big event, this is an astronomical phenomenon that humans have never seen in modern history.
Specifically, we will have the opportunity to admire the astronomical phenomenon “binary star system KIC 9832227, 18 million billion km from Earth, there may be a supernova explosion”.
The binary star system KIC 9832227 consists of 2 stars moving in the same orbit. In 2013, Prof.Molnar and students from the University of Wyoming and the Apache Point Observatory detected variations in the brightness and distance of this binary star system.
In 2017, Professor Lawrence Molnar and scientists from Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan (USA) said that about 5 years from now, in 20202, this star system will merge.
When these two stars collide, they will cause a supernova explosion and produce light 600,000 times stronger than the light of the Sun. This means that even though the explosion was 2 million light-years from Earth, we could still see its light at night with the naked eye.
This is the “once in a thousand years” opportunity in human history to witness a supernova explosion with the naked eye.

According to National Geographic, at the meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Grapevine, Texas, USA, astronomer Larry Molnar of Calvin University predicted this supernova explosion will take place around 2022 or 2023.
“This is going to be a big change in the sky, anyone can see it,” said Larry Molnar.
Scientists say that about 2.5 million years ago, the possibility of a similar supernova explosion occurred. TUM’s research team has announced the existence of 60Fe and 53Mn in the earth’s crust dating back to about 2.5 million years old. That means that at that time, the earth was hit by a supernova energy storm.

If it happened at a close enough distance, the supernova explosion could destroy all life on the earth’s surface at that time. Fortunately, the cosmic event occurred at a distance far enough that the radiation from this explosion took several thousand years to reach Earth.
The report’s author Dr. Thomas Faestermann hypothesized that radiation remnants from supernova explosions probably contributed to the so-called Ice Ages from 2.6 million years ago.
