According to our present understanding, the Sun is too small to supernova.

Does the Chandrasekhar Limit determine minimum mass for Supernova or Black hole? All I know is that the Chandrasekhar limit is >1.4 solar masses, so whichever one it pertains to, Sol will miss out on the fun!

Well that's a poll with only one right answer barring some really unlikely catastrophic event (I leave it to the reader to figure out what that might be).

JS, I think you may have hit on the plot of The Core II: THE SCIENCE IS DEAD ON!
