Dying Helix Nebula Star?

Dying Helix Nebula Star? Topic: Cloud writing paper
June 17, 2019 / By Corona
Question: I'm writing a paper about the dying sun like star in the Helix Nebula, I don't know a whole lot about the planets so im asking if anyone knows what will happen to it and our Milky Way system when it explodes? im curious about this because i learned when our sun dies in about 5 billion years, it releases all the energy its produces in a "Big Bang" type of explosion, thus our sun will destroy earth and most likely everything else in this system. So i'm asking what will or might happen when Helix Nebula dies? and possibly how soon?

Your research so far has been a bit faulty. The star at the centre of the Helix is a white dwarf. It was once a star comparable to our sun. After 10 billion years or so of slow expansion, it became a red giant relatively quickly. After pulsating for tens of thousands of years, it ran out of "fuel". The outer layers of gas and other elements puffed off and could later be seen, as they crashed into the tenuous interstellar gas, as what we call a planetary nebula (which has nothing to do with planets, by the way). The remains of the star is a white dwarf. Nothing dead about it.. You wouldn't want to go near one. The helix nebula is a cloud. It won't explode. There are many planetary nebulae in the galaxy. The white dwarf will fade after probably trillions of years. Our sun is not massive enough to explode. It will also become a white dwarf after ejecting its huge outer layers. We will be long gone before this, probably evolved into something we can't imagine. A billion years from now the planet will be uninhabitable anyway. And the Big Bang was not literally an explosion. It was a huge expansion of something already there. It's where the something came from that's the centre of discussion now. So your research might change direction to, how did the Helix originate, and how does this illustrate the future of our sun?

hey! McKade here to give it a shot. Ok, it seems we have two diffrent battles here, space and surface. lets look at the space battle first. Now, it seems that you have matched the forces of the fleets quite evenly... but... im going to have to give the upper hand to the imperials. For 2 main reasons. First off, the fighters. Now, i don't know if the UNSC have fighters in this case, (you never mentioned) but, even if they did, they would still be inferior to tie fighters. Your probably thinking "Hold up playa, tie fighters got swag?" yes, the tie fighters would win. even though they have debateably inferior weaponry, they have more manuverability, and have alot more numbers. this combined with the unknown effect of imperial weapons on UNSC shields, would lead to eminent victory for the fighters. Now, while this dogfight was going on, the larger ships would have been going at it right? well... lets dissectct the situation. the UNSC ships would have the advantage both from numbers, and possibly from weapons, but they overestimate one thing. There shields. Considering the UNSC forces have recently equipped their ships witShieldsds, and to them shields haven't been around long, the empire would have much more powerfuShieldsds. which would be able to supply ample protection untilll the fighter ordeal subsides. Once the fighters are freed up, the larger ships will deploy bombers which then (escorted by the fighters) will proceed to strafe the UNSC force until they are nothing but a pile of dust. Now concerning the shields, the victory class heavy frigates are armed with more weapons then chuck norris in a national armory, so they should be able to at least take down the enemy shields before blowing up. in short, space victory to the empire, with one star destroyer, and 2 tartan cruisers remaining. (tarta cruisers were destroyed to calculate in acceptable losses.) Now for the ground battle, this battle is up for grabs. It mainly comes down to the question if conventional firearms can penetrate storm trooper armor. Again, don't underestimate the imperials military because of a movie. But, lets say that it does penetrate. Now, the storm troopers will primarily stay in defensiveve position while the AT-AT's pave the way. the biggest concern for humans is how to take them down. Im afraid Scarab tactics won't work with these. Maybe you'll be able to destroy them if the UNSC uses alot of wolverines and vultures, but those things were built to last.but, lets say that you wipe them out, at the loss of 500 marines, 300 tanks, and the remainder of your vultures. Now, it will primarily be down to support against support. The sheer numbers of the storm troopers allow them to overwhelmlm the UNSC force very fast, but there are going to be alot of factors that will stop them. for instance, a line of tanks would shred them. But mainly, the UNSC would win. The spartan would simply annihilatelte them. Jedi are fine example of how imperial inantry react to special forces. but we must accept losses. In short, UNSC victory remaining troops: 2 spartans, 25 ODST, 500 tanks, 750 air vehicles, 1000 marines. This would be the most likely course of action. UNSC victory on the ground, Empire victory in space. glad i could help out. -McKade

My thought on this I think halo would whoop ***. No offense I like star war but c'mon han solo and chewbaca can kill atleast a hundred of stormtrooper. A squad of spartans is game over for the storm trooper and everything else. Master chief single handle destroy a covervant ship. Can't forget the MAC guns on the unsc ship. Those things shoot right thru anything. First come the battle in space. By time tie fighter get in range to unsc ship. Unsc is already firing they mac gun at long distance range aiming for the main ship of the imperial first so the star destroyer is gone unsc have theys fighter handling the tie fighters and you said they have succesfully master shield. When unsc first made contact with the converant. It was hard enough for unsc to take covetant out because of there shield. So since unsc have shield, its gonna be a hard time for the imperial to take them out. By time the stormtrooper land. The spartans are already down there already making a plan. imperial lost Half they air power is whipe out.unsc loses fighter. Tie fighter was able to take out maybe 2 titan class. The spartan gonna handle the heavy gear of the imperial (AT-AT Walkers) while odst are landing behind the stormytrooper. the 24,000 ready battle veteran are facing the stromtrooper seein them march towards them. And have you notice lmperial alway goes in with force like a blitz tactics. That's they weakness. Stormtrooper never knew they were surrounded. They rush in with force but left the rear not cover and storm trooper can't shoot its either there guns or they dont have acccracy you remember when han solo and luke was on the death star I think it was epsoide 4, there was atleast ten stormtrooper shooting at han and luke and missing all those shots. All AT-AT are destroy by the spartan. Spartan goes help odst. Unsc mac gun is raining down on stormtrooper. Unsc marines yelling out GET SUM! !! shooting. The strenghts for unsc is they over-came and conquare using gurialla tactic using a small group to take out imperial heavy gears like a group of navy seals and unsc witg there mac guns using distance to take out there enemies like a lone sniper taking there targets. Imperial loses . Causalties is off the chart for the imparial. Unsc lose 10-20 % but other people has therw opinion. I know a lot because I have played,watch, and read books of halo and starwars. If dark vader is in it my guess he got blow up with his rest of his crew while unsc have they mac guns aim for star destroyer. Like master chief says he never miss.

They team up to fight the mutant ball sacks caused by all that radiation coming from space after those space ships ripped through the planets atmosphere. It would be a short fight due to the fact that when either side shoots the other they cringe with the thought of the pain. Eventually they ALL team up and go out for pizza, blackjack and strippers. Lots and Lots of strippers

"...what will happen to it and our Milky Way system when it explodes?..." When what explodes? The star in the center of the Helix Nebula? That star will never explode because it never had enough mass. What's happened is that it's entered 'old age' and swollen into a red giant star, in the process throwing off great quantities of its mass. That's what forms the huge ring around the star. This is the same fate that our own sun will encounter in about 3- to 3.5-billion years. Like the star in the Helix, our sun won't explode because it lacks enough mass. It will swell into a red giant, certainly consuming Mercury and Venus and frying the surface of Earth. Over longer periods of time it will also begin throwing off much of its outer layers, leaving behind another circular nebula like the Helix.

4. Depends on what you mean by "middle" - the center of the Earth is called the inner core. 5. Core 1. what is a think region? 8. Einstein 10. Period 7. Orbit 11. Solar system 15. Surface 14. Jupiter 16. Rotation This looks suspiciously like homework. And you say you did all your work - but these questions are Grade 1 easy - so I'm curious what work you did (and I've seen these exact same questions with the same spelling error in #1 and the same numbering by someone else). Did you know that the point of homework is to learn how to learn, not to just get someone to give you the answers? How much do you know now that you have the answers but don't know how to find them for yourself?
