[url=http://www.bungie.net/News/Blog.aspx?mode=news#cid32236]To the Blog![/url] It was nice to give our weekly conversation the usual royal treatment again. As a bonus to the usual challenge (which you will find embedded in the Sack itself), I will be selecting three lucky people who respond to this thread to receive a free code to download the new and improved Kerbal Space Program. To qualify, complete this sentence: "I want to journey into space because..." To learn more about KSP, pay a visit to the [url=http://www.twitch.tv/kerbalsp]KerbalKon[/url] being streamed all day long by our friends at Squad - but be sure to come back to Bungie.net and help your fellow community peeps solve the puzzle for this week.

Earth's core solidifies, and its magnetic field dies down. Solar winds bombard the surface, all life is killed by the radiation, and even electronic are fried. (not even robots are safe...) Technically not the Earth being destroyed, but definitely a case of the world ending. 2. In.... what was it? 4.5 billion? 4 billion? One of those two numbers of years. That's when the sun expands into a Red Giant (think that's the name, lil' rusty) and envelopeds all the planets up to Mars. The Sun eventually recedes into being a white dwarf. On an unrelated note, does anyone know if the sun has an actual name? [Edited on 12.15.2012 12:19 PM PST]
