Supernova explosions may have helped shape Earth's climate history
Star explosions may have played a greater role in Earth's climate history than scientists thought. Nearby supernovas have left a series of possible fingerprints in the tree-ring record here on Earth over the past 40,000 years, potentially disrupting our planet's climate multiple times over this span, a new study reports. He then compared the estimated timing of these cosmic events with spikes in carbon-14, as observed in the tree-ring record .

Scientists have spotted spikes in the tree-ring record, which have generally been attributed to powerful flares from our own sun .space.com
