WR104 Gamma Ray Burst

  1. Dec 24, 2009 #1
    Sorry if I sound crazy, but I just heard about this and would like a reliable fact check before I worry.

    So I recently heard about this binary star system known as WR104. I read that it was pointed right at us and, at some point in the future, it will release a gamma ray burst that will wipe out all life on earth. Also, I heard that it was not a question of if, but when and could happen at any moment.

    I just want to know the truth about this and I know that the people on this forum know what they are talking about.
