The night sky seems peaceful and orderly. But in reality, stars are careening through the galaxy at speeds of hundreds of thousands of kilometres per hour. Not bound by static formations but changing neighbourhoods constantly. Fortunately space is big, and so the stars of the Milky Way are very unlikely to hit us. Unfortunately, they don’t have to hit anything to make us have a really bad time on earth. And there are already stars starting to get very close.

      Science stupid Science doesn't know why volcano energy 10 000 times stronger than the atomic bomb ??? The science of brain was high the word is that the Earth spins inertia Children alsoknow that inertia on ly helps the wheel to spin A little more Positrons + and electrons - rotate very rapidly after 46 billions years of creating the Earth ' s core. So the core of the Earth rotates very quickly like A super large electric turbine that produces super large electrical energy, it is this enormous electrical energy that drives the Earth rotates, it is this huge electrical energy volcano 10 000 times stronger than the atomic bomb

    The fact that it takes so long for humanity to die makes it so horrifying and yet, the idea of underground cities floating in space as Earth becomes a human egg for a new world is also an amazing idea. Like, it would be legitimately poetic if this horrifying thing happened near the Earth's end due to it just being around so long. Like, one last gift for the humanity that Earth brought to life. God, we take our planet for granted.

    Where does the energy from gravity actually come from? If the earth and moon were rogue and hypothetically ended up in a perfect vacuum, would the orbit of the moon flexing the earth keep it slightly warm forever? That would be perpetual motion which is impossible so I assume I'm missing something about how the gravity works.
