    And yet, most believe that gravity travels at c. Even though gravity is just previously entangled matter seeking to reestablish its original compacted state BTBB (before the big bang).

    (Don't pay any attention to me. I'm just practising for the looney bake-off.)

    And gravitational waves are not gravity, any more than folds in a tartan make a kilt.

    I doubt that humans can survive a large-body impact event. Even if one were in the ISS at the time of the impact, there's nowhere to go and no way to get there.

    That's so unvisionary to say that the fate of the Earth is to be baked.

    UTS?, ISO? In your case, possibly Whitworth?

    It's pretty likely, however, seeing as how it's happened several times in the remote past. "Remote past" is a relative term.

    How so a valid comparison? Pushing out the Earth's orbit and deploying planet-shades was not within our capability before. In the "near future" it will be.

    Due to an error converting from rods/hundredweight to chains/stone during the orbital modification, we are saddened to announce that the Earth is now falling into the Sun.

    How near is "near"? We haven't been to the moon in almost 50 years. Somehow, I don't have a lot of faith in our ability to carry off grand schemes.

    Let's see, h. sapiens has been around, what, 300,000 years?

    Maybe our robotic successors will be able to do something. They'll certainly be better at extraterrestrial propagation.

    No, just not happy calling our super descendants robots.
