Time magazine asks, will the earth have two suns by 2012?

Why, yes, Virginia, our nearest neighbor Alpha Centauri is hurtling towards us at three times the speed of light!

Actually, the article refers to the possible collapse and supernova of Betelgeuse. The scientific illiteracy on display is staggering. Not that we should be surprised to find this in Time.
