After some good tabloid trash, I always like to read a good "We're all going to dieeee!" yarn, too:
A STAR primed to explode in a blast that could wipe out the Earth was revealed by astronomers yesterday.
It will self-destruct in an explosion called a supernova with the force of 20 billion billion billion megatons of TNT.
New studies show the star, called T Pyxidis, is much closer than previously thought at 3,260 light-years away - a short hop in galactic terms.
Darn. Sure hope it doesn't come before the State of the Union address. It'd be a shame to miss that.
