    Gamma ray bursts are realeased directly up the spin axis of spinning binary stars when they nova..Seems we 've found a pair presenting a perfect spiral ( a top down view of their mutual orbit) could last a few more hundred thousand years( an astronomical short fuse) then blam!earth gets roasted in gamma rays.cleaning the face of all life.

    Hm. Since gamma rays travel at the speed of light, and that is many light years away, we are seeing what was going on years ago. The thing may have already gone super, and the gamma burst could get here tomorrow --.

    Well I guess that means all of our preps have gone to not. I think I will just keep on going anyways. Mother always said I was stubborn.

    Edit: These stars are spinning perfectly perpendicular to us, Think of them as spinning gasoline off a sponge in a single direction. We will see the full pinwheel, but suffer none of the effectgs. I dont think we need to worry about this, as we are so far away that by the time that the gama wave radiation would reach us, we probably have moved, its dispersed to a safe level, the radiation might have been caught in a nebulae developing new stars, or many other situations. Dont worry about this stuff.

    They were aimed at us xyz years ago when the light started our way. We don't have a clue which way precession is carrying them, the bearing rate may be constant, and it is still aimed our way. We GOTTA worry, it is a genetic trait among sheepdogs. THE SKY IS FALLING!!! Don't you know nuttin'? How do you know that there isn't a gravitational lens out there just waiting to focus all those photons on Vancouver?
