    Being swallowed by a sun would be a shitty way to go. I'm damned glad we don't have to worry about this for a long long time.

    I think it's highly unlikely the human race will exist at all by the time our sun supernovas.

    The sun will never supernova, it's mass is too low.

    Well we'd have to somehow up the mass of the sun by ten folds and then somehow figure out how to stop the fusion reaction so it could collapse.

    I think making the sun supernova is one of the last things the human raise has to worry about.

    Damn! Well there's still hope then, at least unless Jupiter becomes a sun *damn you monoliths! *
