Because this blast was 3.7 billion light-years away, mankind was spared. In fact, no one on Earth could even see it with the naked eye.

We were never in any danger from it.

Scientists might be able to detect warning signs of an impending gamma ray burst. But if a burst were headed for Earth and the chances of that happening are close to zero, astronomers say there wouldn't be anything anybody could do about it.
