Which of these evolutionary paths is the fate of our sun?

Planetary nebula Nova Brown dwarf Supernova of type II Pulsar
Question asked by: u00sxc6

Asked on: 23 Oct 2009

Our sun will expand to become a red giant, and it will get much cooler and a lot larger.

Infact it will get so large relative to its current size that it will eventually engulf the earth!

It will not explode like a supernova because it is not big enough.
