Say goodbyes, kiss your children, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, whatever, we only have 2.5 billion years left.

No, the article actually says that the collision is unlikely to affect earth. The real problem comes in 4 billion years when Andromeda collides with us.

Everything I’ve read about that one is that we will likely be okay from that one too. I’m expecting to be around for it. Surely by then technology will be good enough to unfreeze my head and put it on a robotic body.
