A Bit Closer, And All Our Days Would Have Been Ruined.

Last week a gamma ray burster star went off, aimed at the earth. Luckily it is several hundred million light years away or we would have been cooked as most life was during the great cambrian extinction. We have a GRB cooking here in the milky way that is only 40 thousand light years away, but it isn't aimed at us.. At least our best astronomers don't think it is.
