if a light year is 5.9 trillion miles, then the star exploded approx. 44.25 trillion miles away...im no mathmatician but that is a looooooooong way away.

we were commenting on this and its possible causes on my physics class. I haven't read the article[entirely] but the this sounds like a classic gamma ray burst caused when a star goes super nova ejecting and enormous amount amount of gamma rays and jets of energetic particles at sub-light speed that heat up the interstellar gases...thus producing the colossal after glow. My professor mentioned that if this had happened near our galaxy the burst would've out shined our sun for a whole minute.

So would it speed up global warming? what effect would it have had on Earth?

quite unlikely, ,y professor told us that the estimated mass of the star was i million trillion solar masses. alpha centaury is a system of three stars, each with about 1 solar masses. even if they went super novae simultaneously[which is highly unlikely] they wouldn't realease enough energy to put an end to our existence.

none directly to our daily existence, perhaps the only effect would jammed satellite signals caused by the electromagnetic energy from the particles. it could also result in a increase in the intensity and of the aurora Boreallis [or northern lights] for a short amount of time since there will be more high energy particle colliding against our planet's magnetic field.

the universe is indeed finite, but it's boundless in extent... much like earth it has no beginning or end. if recent theories about the shape of our universe are correct, our universe should look like a highly exotic balloon with all kind of protuberances and peaks protruding from it. you could traverse along the surface of this fabric that constitute our universe and theoretically end up at your initial point of origin. all of this is mere speculation as of right now until we have some evidence of extra dimensions.
