Expected read time is a simple web application that takes a certain amount of your recent articles and displays how long it would take you to read them. You can head over to the Github page and see the code.
To get started, go ahead and read the blurb below. Please time yourself while reading, and once finished, enter the number of articles you want returned along with the time it took you to read the blurb.
A supernova is a stellar explosion that briefly outshines an entire galaxy, radiating as much energy as the Sun or any ordinary star is expected to emit over its entire life span, before fading from view over several weeks or months. The extremely luminous burst of radiation expels much or all of a star's material at a velocity of up to 30,000 km/s (10% of the speed of light), driving a shock wave into the surrounding interstellar medium. This shock wave sweeps up an expanding shell of gas and dust called a supernova remnant. A great proportion of primary cosmic rays comes from supernovae.
