At about 950 times bigger than our Sun, Betelgeuse is one of the biggest stars in our Universe. But that comes with a price. Just like us, stars have a life expectancy, and Betelgeuse is no different. It’s a ticking time bomb that's ready to go, but we're not sure when. So, what if today was the day Betelgeuse went out with a bang? How would the Earth be affected? And will our Universe ever be the same?
