The sun fell out of orbit and is falling towards Earth at terminal velocity. You are the president of the United Nations. You have two choices:
1) Use the Earth's entire nuclear arsenal to destroy the Sun. This will save the Earth but temperatures will drop to absolute zero, causing a second and permanent ice age. World War 3 will erupt in the scramble for oil and energy.
2) Let the Sun crash into the Earth. Everyone will die on impact.
What do you do?
Not really. We'd have 8 minutes before the sun dissappeared (and we lost it as a heat source). The earth also has it's own residual heat stored in the ground. We'd have some time, but not much.

no, no no
>This will save the Earth but temperatures will drop to absolute zero, causing a second and permanent ice age.
This is not how physics work
Dumbest question I've seen in a long time.
This is brilliant, gonna lurk to see if some retards try to answer.
On an unrelated note TIMECUBE GET HYPE
>Sun falling out of orbit
>Earth's Entire nuclear Arsenal
To destroy the Sun?
We'd all be dead, fucktard
>Let the Sun Crash into Earth
We'd all be fried as soon as it got close enough anyway.
This is the first thread I saw today and the cancer is already booming.
My brains are leaking from my ears.
Most metal way to die, hmm now that's interesting.
I'm saying you get eaten at an all-you-can-eat
and that happens
No such thing as terminal velocity in space. Terminal velocity is gravity balanced with air resistance. And there is no air in space, but you probably didn't know that because of you autism. And all the nuclear bombs on earth would do nothing against the sun. You are a dickless retard.
>implying you could ever be so grossly incandescent
I would hope most people realize that this is hypothetical and would never happen. What will happen eventually is the sun will get so big and hot everything on earth will die in like..2 billion years or so.
Sun is too big to have efficient convection so it won't be able to fuse all of its hydrogen. THEN BAM WE GET HELIUMED UP TIMECUBE GET HYPE
Minimum temperature of space away from all sunlight is 2.7K due to cosmic background radiation.
8/10 made me respond
ITT: retards fall for obvious bait pasta
Had a hearty chuckle
>The sun fell out of orbit
sorry to break this to you, but the sun doesnt orbit the earth. We orbit it.
>Use the Earth's entire nuclear arsenal to destroy the Sun.
the entire earths nuclear arsenal wouldnt be enough to destroy the moon Phobos, yet alone the sun.
>This will save the Earth but temperatures will drop to absolute zero, causing a second and permanent ice age
If we drop to absolute zero, then the oxygen will freeze out of the atmosphere into liquids. fleshy organic creatures would all be made extinct almost immediately.
>World War 3 will erupt in the scramble for oil and energy.
No, it wouldnt. because nothing on earth would be alive to have a war.
your knowledge of basic physics is astounding... for its complete absence.
That's what I'm saying, man. Please direct your replies to OP. He's thinks if the sun disappeared then we would reach Absolute zero. And even if we hypothetically could, we would still die anyway.
Actually sun is orbiting Sagittarius A in the center of Milky Way which is believed to be a supermassive black hole. OP is still a faggot though. I don't see how sun could fall from its orbit any time soon since it would need another galaxy or super massive black hole. If that happened there would be no way of stopping it
Just fly to the moon you asshole. Once the sun crashes into the earth, earths atmosphere will ignite, possibly turning our planet into a new sun,that will turn the moon into a proper, inhabitable planet.
yeah but motion is relative so OP is correct
The sun is not in orbit. It is the object around which all the other planetary orbits revolve.
Everything on the earth would be burned away long before impact, dumb ass. We would die from the heat before it got hot enough to burn up our corpses.
The entire nuclear arsenal isn't even a drop in the bucket compared to all the nuclear activity on the sun. Even if they reached the sun's surface, they would do absolutely nothing to alter the sun's path. In fact, all the nuclear warheads would be detonated long before they reached the sun's surface.
Also, the sun is 1.3 million times the mass of the earth. The sun wouldn't even hiccup when it swallowed up the cinder that the earth would be by the time it impacted with the sun's surface.
Your scenario is unrealistic.
if that's the only reason then you will be with him because you are also a faggot that sucks dicks. :DDDDDDDDDDD
3) Hurl OP into the Sun. This will cause the Sun to move away from him back into position, as nothing in the Heavens or Earth wants to be around such an enormous faggot.
technically due to the abstract definitions of absolute zero, it is possible to go into negative Kelvin when holding single particles in place with lasers
Obviously you can't get "colder" than absolute zero but convention means negative temperatures are possiTIMECUBE GET HYPE
Thread: You have 2 options

Please lurk more before using the word b8
I'd go with 2) as it would kill you
>Use the Earth's entire nuclear arsenal to destroy the Sun
this is why the aliens won't visit us
OP you are totally retarded ))) Do u know what mass of the SUN is? )))
Also the SUN is our GOD and if GOD decides to destroy us so shall it be! Mankind is a total failure anyway! No hard feelings there )))
So who likes my OC exhibition?
I like to call it "mouthbreather I found on facebook" and it is a work in progress.
You can save it if you want. There is no copyright in the TIMECUBEOSPHERE GET HYPE
even if humanity had enough nuclear power to destroy the sun (also assuming the warheads even made it to the sun, the heat would detonate them before even reaching the surface) the resulting supernova would wipe out the entire solar system and then some. this thread is stupid
>in the picture
>implying I would give you a picture of me
>implying these implications
This is also a picture of someone that isn't me
smart faggots, the sun is orbiting around the centre of mass of the solar system
but i agree the scenario is really stupid
It's a lot more believable than me uploading pictures of myself with my mouth open and then saying "look at this mouthbreather".
See here's another picture of someone that isn't me
ARE YOU SURE THOUGH
I REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE THESE PICTURES
IT'S FOR WHEN YOU KNOW THAT EVERYONE IN THE THREAD IS A MOUTHBREATHER AND YOU WANT TO MAKE A POINT
because your post makes sense...
>pic very related
There is no "terminal velocity", because the earth does not exert enough gravitational force on the sun to attract the sun toward it, so the sun would not "fall". If anything, the sun would pull the earth out of orbit, and the earth would fall into the sun.
Wouldn't our nuclear warheads just act as fuel for the sun?
Wouldn't the sun scorch the entire planet before it got close enough to impact?
Is impact even the word that should be used? Probably absorb would be more apt.
Let us say that our warheads did impact the sun, wouldn't it either go supernova [which would kill us] or become a black hole? [which would kill us]
I insert another option, learn 2 live in space.
true, there is no terminal velocity, but that is not why, nor does any of that make sense. Terminal velocity arises due to air resistance in the atmosphere. It is dependant on altitude above Earth, and its effectively infinite at 100km above the surface. The sun is 1,400,000km across. Therefore there is no terminal velocity.
The earth attracts the sun just as it attracts you (or the moon for a better example). The sun does, however, impart a significantly greater acceleration on the earth, although the total force that each exerts on the other is equal
if all our nukes hit the sun and detonated at the same instant, absolutely nothing at all would happen. You would struggle to spot a flash with a specialist sun-viewing telescope. The sun is far bigger than any of you are imagining
Sun works with fusion, nukes with fission. If the Sun was hot enough to fuse fissile elements it would be in the middle of a supernova already.
The nukes will explode rather more dramatically than they normally would, but they would not act as fuel.
Making a star go supernova is a long and complicated series of cascading bursts, fusing heavier and heavier elements. The best we could hope for is a planetary nebula where the core throws off the mantle and then fizzles out into a white dwarf.
Wait until night to attack it and send it back where it belongs
Okay first up terminal velocity is when drag = thrust so there is no resultant force and acceleration.
Anything in a circular orbit is at terminal velocity because it is not accelerating towards the centre at all. That velocity is 0.
This is actually quite possible in deep space due to the fact that photons and shit have momentum.
As a photon hits an object it pushes it ever so slightly. If we have a large flat object between two stars then it could theoretically be pushed by the larger one up to a terminal velocity towards the other one.
OMG OPETH AKERFELDTH SO FUNNY BECAUSE THE NEW RECORD IS PALE COMMUNION SO HE IS HAVING HIS FIRST COMMUNION GOD THIS IS SO FUNNY
get the fuck out faggot
The earth does not exert enough gravitational force on the sun to attract it. Since the sun's gravitational force is so much greater than that of the earth, the earth's gravitational pull is insignificant. If the sun had an orbit within the solar system, and it somehow fell out of that orbit, the earth still would not alter the course of the sun. The sun would alter the course of the earth. You're not being logical, you're being argumentative to boost your super ego with your pseudo intellect.
The terminal velocity of a falling object is the velocity of the object when the sum of the drag force and buoyancy equals the downward force of gravity acting on the object.
The "total force that each exerts on the other is not equal. The sun's gravitational force is just under 28 times that of the earth. The two do not cancel each other out or equalize.
force is equal to (negative)(the gravitational constant)(Mass of attracting object)(Mass of the attracted object)/(distance)^2
this means that the force the sun exerts on the earth IS EQUAL TO the force the earth exerts on the sun. HOWEVER, since the sun is 333,000x more massive than the earth, the ACCELERATION of the sun is very low compared to that of the earth
The earth is stationary, everything else is a projection relayed on earth's atmosphere to keep us contained by the government. Time relay sensor gives you night and day, coordinated across the earth. Astrological events are time based because every once in a while you neckbeards start questioning shit.Best way to keep a population under control is to keep them contained to one planet. >Checkmate earthlings
>Anything in a circular orbit is at terminal velocity because it is not accelerating towards the centre at all.
an object in orbit is accelerating constantly towards the centre, thats why it doesnt go off into deep space
