Submission + - Good News: Earth May Survive Sun's Demise (nytimes.com)

mlimber writes: In five billion years when the sun runs out of fuel, it will become a red giant, bloating out to consume the nearer planets. Or so we thought. A team of astronomers has announced that it has found a planet that apparently survived its star's great swelling and was pushed out instead of being swallowed up. Will Earth be able to survive likewise? It seems that there is at least a chance, though it would still almost certainly wipe out life as we know it.
