I wish to learn more about the star Sirius. I believe it's mass is slightly less than 3 solar masses and it is 8.7 light years from the Earth. Will Sirus transition into a nova or supernova? How long will it remain a main sequence star? How will the forces generated at the time Sirius enters into a nova or supernova phase affect or effect the Earth? Is there any evidence that the Earth has interacted with the affects or effects of a nova or supernova in the past? How can I learn more about novas and supernovas? Sincerely, Thomas R. Kelly firstname.lastname@example.org Thank You
