If a killer asteroid is headed straight to Earth, what can we do to survive? We would try to destroy it, sure — or we would merely get out of its means. 👋⁠

An astrophysicist named Matthew Caplan has designed a “stellar engine” which may theoretically switch Earth’s full picture voltaic system from one part of the Milky Possibility to 1 different. If it actually works, it’d theoretically push the Photo voltaic from its current location to a model new one at a velocity of about 50 gentle years per 1,000,000 years.⁠

Faucet the hyperlink in our bio to study further about how this fascinating (and Earth-saving) invention would work.⁠

  • Shooting the asteroid is more practical.

  • People imagination has really been hindered. Video games? Media? Shitty pop music passed as legendary music. Instead of being intrigued with science in the world, now we have a lot of egotistical “kids” (simply by how you act) scoffing at science yet still following the pages. I don’t get it? Move along if you’re not intrigued with science and keep wasting your imagination on the current state of media. Science is about imagination. This is the way.

  • They gonna use the sun to move the sun and the orbit of all surrounding it? Is that what this is saying without reading anything more than i just did? Dont spot us too close to another solar system.. actually. Plz dont move us.. human do not plz.

  • Or well… you could bomb the asteroid in half or something so it would miss or get split..? 😂

  • Why not try and redirect the asteroid into the sun

  • I’m posting this because this was exactly how I also saw a recommendation and decided to give it a try now my $1000 is $9000 😫thanks to @stay_rich_with_kev_li

  • Interesting idea but wrong application. The asteroid would also be orbiting the sun like everything else in our solar system. Not to mention all the interstellar debris that we would be moving into…

  • At a BBQ in 2012, I put Stella in my mates lawnmower, just to see what would happen….wouldn’t start at all. I’ve done loads of experiments with lager, it’s a laugh but generally stuff gets broke.🍺🌌

  • I’m confused…if you balance the thrust by pushing the sun with a beam so that they never run into each other, isn’t the net thrust zero??? @callenbenjamin am I stupid?

  • BS..There is no such man made machine that can even think of touching our earth or even think of our solar system, people are fanatic, they mix too much of a joke with scientific inventions!!!
