Since there is no smoke without fire, let's calculate the amount of "smoke" to understand what awaits us in 2022. Knowing Murphy's laws, consider the worst case: astronomers were wrong and the mass of the KIC 9832227 binary system is sufficient (8 ÷ 10 solar masses) to form a supernova, and, according to Murphy, it will. What then? To release 10⁴⁴ J of energy, of which ~ 1% as electromagnetic energy: light, X-rays and gamma rays. The last 2 types of radiation are the most dangerous for us, since at their high intensity they will destroy the ozone layer, change the composition of the atmosphere, and our comfortable life will come to an end. This stimulates the counting further. The binary system is 1800 light years away. Knowing this distance, the total expected energy flux in the vicinity of the Earth will be about 275 J / m2 or (275 / t) J / m2 during the time (t) of the maximum radiative glow of the supernova (t>> 1 second). Comparing with solar radiation or with the so-called. With the solar constant (1360 W / m²), we get that the Solar radiation is at least 5t times (or 1360/275 / t) higher than the expected radiation from the merger of stars in the KIC 9832227 binary system. The maximum luminosity of all types of supernovae is expected from t≈10 days up to t≈50 days. Murphy would suggest substituting t = 1 day = 24 × 3600≈100000 sec. Thus, it turns out that if at a distance of 1800 sv. years would have merged not one, but 500,000 binary KIC 9832227, then the contribution from their expected radiation to the Earth would be compared with the contribution of Solar radiation. These calculations were carried out by me taking into account Murphy's laws. But I still recommend taking care of these days, as there is an opinion that Murphy was an optimist.

Who cares what the speculations are. In fact, there will be nothing particularly influencing our life. For us, only rays of narrow directivity are dangerous, which are obtained from completely different objects. In a supernova explosion, although a lot of energy is released, it scatters in all directions and, given the distance, some ridiculous amounts of energy reach us, which can be admired with the eye, and that's all.

For whatever, a standard set of charlatan fairy tales:

1) the end of the world

2) the appearance of aliens

3) the third coming

4) the appearance of unusual qualities in those born at this moment

It makes no sense to pay attention to them, there are much more interesting and useful activities. For example, read about the co-evolution of close binaries, watch educational videos about the types of supernovae and methods of studying them. Here's a starter: www.youtube.com
