We'd have to evacuate the Earth , but that's impossible and we've got nowhere to go , so we'd have to move the Earth but that's almost certain death without our place in the Solar System so we'd have just have to sit and wait for the inevitable .... until now !

Astrophysicist Matthew Caplan has potentially saved the day with his invention of the Caplan Thruster , a device that will move not only the Earth but the Sun and Solar System too.... in a few million years.

Ingenious , the Sun would be like a giant camper van towing us all along with it ... To Infinity ... and beyond !!!!

Of all the unlikely events that may cause my death, a star hitting the Earth at random is the unlikeliest of them all.

We die.

That is all.

It would be the most extreme though but it doesn't have to be a Star , anything large enough to cause wipe out life on Earth would be worth avoiding.

That is sweet. Let's go cruise this ball around a bit.

Obviously, we go through the military Nuclear War option.

Loosen belt.
Drop trousers.
Bend way over.
Kiss butt goodbye.

Move the Earth???? The man's been watching too many Sci-Fi movies. The earth is part of a giant dynamic system called The Solar system. Move it just a bit would have a knock on effect that even he could calculate. Impossible to move the Earth, so we have to take what's coming to us.

find the best bottle of bourbon you have, pour a nice glass, neat. Place lawn chair in the middle of the yard, enjoy the bourbon, and smile for the flash. That is all.

Why not move the rogue star instead?

I don't know what you would do but I would bend over and kiss my ass goodbye.

Well, if you watched the video, you would've known that the theory is about moving the Sun and solar system with a solar thruster.

Yes, but it will take a few days before this is operational.

I like schuyler's idea. Seems to make more sense.

I'd hit those credit cards so hard and get the bucket list done. Best party ever.

With my luck, I'd do the same and the star would do a miraculous 90 degree turn before impact leving me clapping and crying at the same time.

Very science fiction but cool concept.

There is absolutely nothing we could do. We could launch a rocket with DNA, Seeds, some frozen animal eggs..
In hopes that it ends up out there somewhere.

All we can do is enjoy the remaining time with debauchery, crime, praying and crying.... TILL

I love the animations and sounds in that video.. wow.
And some nice ideas for star engines.. I might want a poster of that in my office, a star engine poster.

Well, if a rogue star was headed our way, it would take hundreds of years to get here. So maybe I will start to drink and smoke cannabis again since the world is going to end. Might as well make the best of it since it is all going to end in a couple hundred years, I won't be able to drink anymore when I am two hundred sixty five years old.

Maybe I should start drinking again, but drinking and posting gets you in as much trouble as drinking and driving.

When I was a kid there was a movie where the most worthy and fertile people were whisked away before the star hit Earth. This one guy left behind in a wheelchair, got so angry, he started walking as the rocket took off.
