On my live video chat. I was asked when the star Betelgeuse will explode. I answer that, and talk about a couple of other stars, too. Incidentally, Sher 25 is about 20,000 light year away, not 6 as I say in the video (I was thinking light years, not parsecs). Links for all this are on my blog: http://www.badastronomy.com/bablog/2008/02/24/what-star-will-blow-up-next/
