The sun is slowly heating up and scientists predict that in five billion years it could turn into a bloated red giant, which would be very dangerous for out planet Earth. The sun would heat up the oceans which would turn into a boiling liquid, so the average temperature on Earth would not go below 50 degrees Celsius.
The plant and animal life would have too little time to adjust and only one organism called Archaea would be able to survive, but only for a while.
But moving the entire population of the planet Earth would take as many as 270 years if 1,000 rockets would take off every day. Even if the emigration worked, adjusting to a new planet would not be simple.
But scientists thought of a better solution than mass evacuation to other planets. How about if we moved the entire planet?
According to principles of physics, that would be possible if we send an enormous rocket into space that would thus give the Earth a ‘push’.
Greg Laughlin of the California University and his associates concluded that it would be best for Earth to travel to mars’s orbit because that would drive it far enough from the sun and would receive as much energy as it is receiving now.
By moving the Earth’s orbit, other planets and space bodies would also move, which could lead to complete chaos in the whole solar system. Laughlin warned that it would be difficult to control the movement of planets and it would be best to just leave them where they are.
