    Nothing in the Universe is static. In the milky way, billions of stars orbit the galactic center.
    Some, like our sun, are pretty consistent, keeping a distance of around 30,000 light years from the galactic center, completing an orbit every 230 million years.
    This dance is not an orderly ballet - more like a skating rink filled with drunk toddlers. This chaos makes the galaxy dangerous. Our solar neighbourhood is constantly changing, with stars moving hundreds of kilometers every second.
    Only the vast distances between objects protect us from the dangers out there. But we might get unlucky in the future. At some point we could encounter a star going supernova. Or a massive object passing by and showering earth with asteroids.
    If something like this were to happen we would likely know thousands, if not millions of years in advance. But we still couldn’t do much about it.
    Unless… we move our whole solar system out of the way.

This was our last video for the year 12019 of the Human Era. And what a year it was. So much stuff happened everywhere. To so many different people. Calendars and holidays are just imaginary but they help us to cut our lives into pieces that our brains can handle. We are leaving 12019 behind with a weird mixture of disillusion and hope. The world is screwed up. But we can fix it. In a few days this year will be over. And we all get to try again. Thank you for watching our videos and for sticking around for so many years. See you all in 12020.

i... wait.. i don't think that works if you move just the sun we would all follow... cuz if the sun is moving that means it will alter our orbit around the sun, hell venus and mercury could just end up crashing into the sun lol, plus isn't there a chance we end up losing some planets along the way too?

But this is science. We live in a world which is mostly controlled by human brain and if we design such a engine in future, human will decide where we will go. Then humans will fight for the power to decide. Science says nuclear energy exists, we made a weapon out of it. The hunger for power will kill us all. In the universe, a tiny little planet, in which humans are killing themselves using science and talking about protecting whole solar system using science. This is amazing. What will happen.

I did not get why we can move the Sun using the Skadov thruster. If it refocus the photon and generate thrust then the Skadov thruster will move. I don't get why the Sun will move along with it. Skadov thruster is not connected with the Sun. So why the source will move ..only the Skadov thruster will move and photon source will remain constant

@Arshad Ashfaque yeah it's stupid. Yes everything you made contact on earth, is slightly moving earth. If you launched a rocket, that rocket is connected to earth, and it will move earth by just a nanometer in 60 hours or so, becuase gravity is proportional to mass

Prieš 5 dienų

@Apple TV I got you explanation but still I have doubts. If thruster is connected to Sun via Gravity then by same logic when we launch Rockets, that to is connected via Gravity with earth and earth should slightly move with rocket. I know it's a bit stupid argument but logic is same. Thanks for your explanation though.

Prieš 5 dienų

@Arshad Ashfaque i know why, the fuel is the sun, because of protons. The sun will move along with it cause it is thrusting, the reflection is the one that creates thrust through the sun, the mirror is connected to the sun because of gravity, and the protons is the one keeping it away from the sun, the reflection creates thrust through the sun making flaming beam, third law of motion indicates that it will move along with it...
