Could any supernova have influenced life on Earth? So, I recently this week was talking to a friend about evolution and, he asked me if a supernova cold influence live on Earth.
When I read the book Origins Neil Grasse Tayson, I had a brief moment of clarity, enthusiasm, and how things are connected. The beauty that is in nature show us, how precious we are, and how and how we are insignificant.
Returning to the point, we can influence small developments such as occurred in dogs, and in some bacteria. But in the case of a supernova would work more like a cleansing process by removing our ozone layer and destroying some beings who depend on it, perhaps after thousands of years the waste this supernova could be recycled by the Earth's climate itself providing a new type of material so that other single-celled organisms could take advantage of these ingredients. Taking a new step in that evolution occurs naturally.
The complexity generated by these events can trigger never seen aspects in existing beings or that of our planet, but for all that radiation would not make anyone today a superhero.
