I have heard that stars eventually burn out.

Has this been proven?

Only by researchers using giant telescopes.

How long does it take? And what's the age of the light when it reaches Earth?

It depends on the star and the distance it is from earth. I read of one recently which died 6000 light years ago and they just saw that recently. I would hazard a guess that the light from that star was 6000 years old.

If there's light, how can it be dead?

Do you see the problem?

No because it takes that long for the light to get her.

It would take the same time for the dark to get here, I think.

I believe you are saying that the scientists watched the light turn to dark. Did any of them claim that? Suspect

According to what I read yes. Maybe I am too trusting?

It will be difficult to get to the bottom of this, because if you Google the phrase "dead stars," most of the hits are about Whitney Houston.

just reminded me of this


that's ex-president Zapatero googling "get out of the crisis" and hitting "I'm feeling lucky"

that must be the way scientists work too, no? sunny

edit: but the stars they do burn out, no?? scratch

Scientists learn the most from their mistakes--all of the good ones say that ("Today I discovered 10 more things that don't work").

And, yes, it's the same in show business; Queen Jane once said: "I've never leaned anything from applause."
