moviemarketing: This has got to be the worst slideshow I've ever seen. You can't even skip to the next slide after reading and the pace seems intended for people who have disabilities or read very slowly. I gave up after the first 3 slides.


Spoiler: They project 10^23 years into the future and the Cubbies still haven't won the World Series.

I think a cool movie would be a sci fi retelling of the idea of Noah's Ark, but with the ships taking samples of Earth life somewhere else on a ship to colonize a freshly terraformed planet. Set it in the future where the Earth isn't doing so well. Eventually things would obviously go horribly wrong resulting in the tragic death of most of the crew, but it just seems like having a scene on the way to the planet would allow for a zero-g fight between a shark, a lion, a bear, and a hot chick with a spear. That would be pretty epic.

INeedAName: HotWingAgenda: That first projection assumes it's actually possible to get to other solar systems. As much of a scifi geek as I am, all the hard facts point to us being trapped on this rock until Sol goes nova. We need literal divine intervention to get human beings to another habitable planet, assuming one even exists.

This comment is completely ignorant. To say that we don't currently have the technology as fine, to even say we don't currently understand the direction our technology needs to hear even makes sense. But frankly there are technically possibilities we most likely haven't even dreamed up yet. So to say it's impossible is rather ridiculous and short sighted.

I can only assume you're one of the congresspersons overseeing NASA.


Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.

lisarenee3505: The chances of the human race nuking itself into oblivion are pretty slim these days.

Oblivion is very unlikely, but we're far from out of the woods: the gentleman pictured below is doing his best to ensure a nuclear war in the next 20 years.

vygramul: Theaetetus: vygramul: Note that the light green optimistic calculation has the earth leaving the habitable zone in ~3b years, not 1.

Well, that's easy enough. We just need to accelerate the Earth. Forward takes you out.

Believe it or not, that idea has been looked at. You fling very large asteroids from way out in the solar system, and if you throw it close enough to earth (and don't make a mistake) and throw enough of them, you can move the earth's orbit out an appreciable amount.


Given that we're looking at a billion years, you could probably use a solar sail to hold a large mass in orbit around the sun and in position in front of the Earth. The gravitational pull would very slightly accelerate the Earth, enlarging the orbit.

/Nice thing is that it wouldn't alter the eccentricity much, just elongate the year.

We came from Venus when the sun was cooler but a passing rogue planet slowed the rotation of the planet down so dramatically that the ice caps melted, oceans boiled into an extremely thick atmosphere, and we had to move on to Earth. But we found scary feathered reptiles with claws and teeth there. We engineered mosquitoes to carry a dino-malaria to kill them off, but they kept getting stuck in tree sap so we had to throw a big rock at Earth to kill off the dinosaurs.

At least one has to survive so we can still get the hot chick with a spear scene in.

No. We came from Mars...

Basically, everything moves around a lot, the stars explode, shiat gets sucked into black holes, the black holes get sucked together into bigger black holes, and then everything explodes out again in a new big bang.
