Yellowstone

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone park’s super volcano took a deep breath a few days ago but scientists say there is nothing to worry about.  They say the magma resevoir thats four to six miles below the surface is driving the uplift but fortunatly the surge doesn’t mean an imminent eruption.

The Yellowstone super volcano has produced major eruptions in the past, each one a thousand times more powerful than st Helens eruption in 1980. Its happened 3 times in the past 2.1 million years, the last one around 640,000 years ago.

A major fish kill or ‘die off’  has occured in the Detriot river.  Andre Mailhot was out walking his Jack Russel dog by the river on Tuesday when he came across thousands of dead fish floating in the water.  He also claims he returned on Wednesday and found two dead ducks.  The Ministry of Enviroment are believed to be investigating.

There have been many news stories around the past few weeks telling of mass animal die offs occuring.  Birds, fish, crabs and even buffallo.  Some say its the beginning of the end of the world, some say its actually common for this to happen.  The end of the world theory may be a little far fetched (but who knows?) and sure in the past we have heard the odd story about hundreds of birds found dead here and there but this many animals dying a short space of time is becoming increasingly worrying.

Tatooines 2 suns

According to Dr Brad Carter the giant red star Betelgeuse is about to go supernova and could reach Earth before 2012. When it does go supernova we will get our second sun just like Tatooine.

It could happen any day now apparently, or it could happen in a million years. So dont get too excited just yet. It will however turn night into day for several weeks.
