    Odds are that if you can see a star that it’s within a few hundred light years and therefor almost definitely still burning. Also, even if it’s a galaxy, if you can see it with the naked eye it’s within a few million light years; a tiny fraction of the life of most stars.

    THE HAPPY POOP

    BALLS

    faithless

    The internet: the place where complete bollocks is asserted as truth with utterly misplaced confidence.

    For example, all the brightest stars in the sky are without doubt still shining (in their own neighbourhood) as I write.

    I’m pretty sure we cannot see (without steerable telescopes and long-exposure photography) any individual star whose light has taken a billion years to reach us. That would make it a billion light-years away and nothing in the Milky Way is that far away.

    So, verdict on the graphic: FAIL.
