Nothing in the universe is static. In the Milky Way, billions of stars orbit the galactic center. Some, like our Sun, are fairly constant, keeping a distance of about 30,000 light years from the galactic center and completing an orbit of orderly ballet every 230 million years, more like an ice rink full of drunk toddlers.
This chaos makes the galaxy dangerous. Our solar neighborhood is constantly changing, with stars moving hundreds of kilometers every second. Only the huge distances between the objects protect us from the dangers out there.
But we could be unlucky in the future. At some point we might encounter a star that becomes a supernova, or a massive object that passes by and floods the earth with asteroids. If something like this happened, we would probably know thousands, if not millions, of years in advance.
But we still couldn't do much about it. Unless we move our entire solar system out of the way. In order to move the solar system, we need a stellar motor, a megastructure with which a star is steered through the galaxy.
It's the kind of thing that could be built by an advanced civilization with Dyson technology at the sphere level, thinking about its future millions of years in advance. But how can we move the hundreds of thousands of objects in the solar system? The good news is news we can ignore all of this. We just have to move the sun; all that other stuff is stuck to it by gravity and will follow wherever it chooses.
There are many ideas about what a stellar engine might look like and how it would work. We selected two based on our current understanding of the physics that could theoretically be built. The simplest type of stellar engine is the Shkadov engine, a giant mirror.
It works on the same principle as a missile. Like rocket fuel, the photons released as solar radiation carry an impulse, not a lot, but a little. For example, if an astronaut turned on a flashlight in space, he would push it back very, very slowly.
A stellar motor works a little better than a flashlight as the sun produces a lot of photons, the basic idea of the Shkadov engine is to reflect up to half of the solar radiation to generate thrust and slowly push the sun where we want it. In order for the Shkadov engine to work, it must be held in the same place and not circling the sun; although the sun's gravity will try to pull it in, it would be aided by the radiation pressure that supports the mirror upwards. This means that the mirror would have to be very light, made of a micrometer-thin reflective sheet made of materials such as aluminum alloys.
The shape of the mirror is also important as it a. enveloping huge spherical shell would not work because the light would focus back towards the sun, heat it up and cause all sorts of uncomfortable problems. Instead, we use a parabola that sends most of the photons around the sun and in the same direction, which maximizes the thrust.
To prevent the earth from accidentally scorching or freezing with too much or too little sunlight, the only safe place to build a Shkadov engine is over the poles of the sun. This means that we can only move the sun vertically in the plane of the solar system and one direction in the Milky Way, which limits our travel options. But that's basically it.
For a civilization capable of building a Dyson sphere, this is a relatively straightforward endeavor. Not complicated, just very difficult to build at full throttle, the solar system could probably be shifted about a hundred light years over 230 million years. For a few billion years it gives us almost complete control over the Sun's orbit in the galaxy.
But in the short term, it might not be fast enough to dodge a deadly supernova. So we thought we could do better. So we asked our astrophysicist friend if he could develop a faster stellar engine for this article.
He did, and wrote an article about it that was published in a peer-reviewed journal, Our Source Document. We're going to call our new stellar engine the Caplan engine. It works much like a traditional rocket: shoot exhaust in one direction to get around It's a large space station platform powered by a Dyson sphere that collects matter from the sun to power nuclear fusion.
It shoots a very fast particle beam at almost 1 percent the speed of light from the solar system. A second beam pushes the sun forward like a tugboat. The Caplan engine requires a lot of fuel, millions of tons per second.
To collect this fuel, our engine uses very large electromagnetic fields to direct hydrogen and helium from the solar wind into the engine. The solar wind alone doesn't provide enough fuel, however, and that's where the Dyson sphere comes in. Its power can be used to refocus the sunlight onto the sun's surface.
This heats small regions to extreme temperatures, lifting billions of tons of mass from the sun. This mass can be collected and separated into hydrogen and helium. The helium is burned explosively in thermonuclear fusion reactors.
A beam of radioactive oxygen at a temperature close to a billion degrees is ejected and becomes our main source of propulsion from our stellar thruster. So that the engine doesn't just hit the sun, it has to balance itself. To do this, we accelerate the collected hydrogen with electromagnetic fields using particle accelerators and shoot a jet back at the sun.
This balances the engine and transfers the thrust of our engine back to the sun. In just a million years, this engine can move the sun 50 light-years, more than enough to avoid a supernova. At full throttle, the solar system can be completely redirected into its galactic orbit in 10 million years.
But wait, are we going to use up the sun this way? Fortunately, the sun is so massive that even billions of tons of material barely scratch the surface. In fact, this megastructure will extend the life of our sun as stars with lower mass burn and burn slower the solar system will remain habitable for many more billions of years. With a Caplan engine, we could turn the entire solar system into our spaceship.
For example, by orbiting backwards in the galaxy and colonizing hundreds or thousands of stars as we pass them. Perhaps it is even possible to escape the galaxy completely and expand beyond the Milky Way. Stellar motors are the type of machines built by civilizations that think in terms of eons rather than years or decades.
Knowing that our sun will one day die, a stellar engine could enable the distant future descendants of humans to travel to other stars without ever venturing into the terrifying dark abysses of interstellar space. By the time we build a stellar engine we are drifting and exposed to the whims of the galactic sea. It may not please where it leads us; perhaps our descendants will set sail and become an interstellar species for millions of years to come.
This was ours last article for the year 12,019 of the human era, and what a year it was, so much stuff happened everywhere, for so many different people. Calendars and holidays are only imaginary, but they help us cut our lives into pieces that our brains can process. We leave 12,019 with a strange mixture of disillusionment and hope.
The world is screwed up, but we can fix it. In a few days this year will be over and we'll try again. See you all in 12,020.
Why does my computer think my location is somewhere else?
Your computer doesn't know or care where you are. Some websites you visit will attempt to guess where you are based mainly on your IP address. They mostly do this by buying a database from a marketing company that compiles and sells lists correlating IP ranges with approximate physical locations.

Why is Google location wrong?
If Google always shows the wrong location is because you device does not provide location or is having trouble getting its location from the GPS satellites due to poor reception or other problems.
If I want to turn this globe into a flat map, I have to cut it open. To make it look like a rectangle, I had to cut it out in places. I had to stretch it to make the countries look all shaky.
And even so, it's almost impossible to lay it flat. And that's where the mapmakers' eternal dilemma lies: the surface of a sphere cannot be defined as a plane without some form of distortion. This guy proved that a long time ago with math.
Since about 1500 mathematicians have started developing algorithms that To translate the globe into something flat, they do this using a process called projection. Popular rectangular maps use a cylindrical projection. Imagine placing a theoretical cylinder over the globe and projecting each point of the sphere onto the surface of the cylinder.
Unroll the cylinder and you have a flat, rectangular card. But you can also project the globe onto other objects and how exactly a map maker projecting the globe will affect how the map looks once it's flattened. And here's the big problem: each of these projections come with trade-offs in shape, Distance, direction and l and area.
Certain map projections can either be misleading or very helpful depending on what you are using them for. Here is an example. This map is called the Mercator Projection.
If you are American, you probably got it at school learned. It uses the Google Maps projection. Mercator projection is popular for several reasons.
First, it generally keeps the shape of the countries. Brazil on the globe has the same shape as Brazil on the Mercator projection. But the real purpose The Mercator Projection was the navigation - it maintains direction, which is a big deal when you're trying to navigate the ocean with just a compass ieren.
It was designed so that a line drawn between two points on the map provides the exact angle that you need to follow on a compass to travel between those points, and when we go back to a globe you can see that this line is not is the shortest route. But it does provide an easy and reliable way to navigate the oceans, Gerardus Mercator, who made the projection in the 16th vedirection by varying the distance between latitudes while making it straight, creating a grid of right angles. But that created other problems.
Where Mercator fails is the portrayal of greatness. Look at the size of Africa compared to Greenland on mercator map they look about the same size. But look at a globe for the true size of Greenland and you will see that it is much smaller than Africa.
In fact by a factor of 14. If we put some points of the same size on a globe, then we projected as a Mercatormap, we would end up with this one. The circles keep their shape, but get bigger the closer you get to the poles.
One modern criticism is that this distortion perpetuates the imperialist stance of European supremacy over the southern hemisphere.Projection has for centuries promoted imperialist attitudes and created an ethnic bias towards the Third World more precisely, you can use the Gall-Peters projection, which is available as a. is called n equal area map.
Look at Greenland and Africa. The size comparison is now accurate. Much better than the Mercator.
But it is obvious that the landforms are now stretched. Here are the dots again so you can see how the projection preserves the surface while keeping it completely distorted shape. Something happened in the late 1960s that changed the whole purpose of mapping and the way we think about projections.
Satellites orbiting our planet began sending location and navigation data to small receiver units around the world in need of paper maps as a means of navigating both the seas and the skies. The selection of the map projection was less about navigation requirements than about aesthetics, design and presentation. The Mercator map, the important tool of navigation before GPS, was shunned by cartographers whonow saw it as misleading.
But most of the web mapping tools like Google Maps still use the Mercator. According to Google, this is because the Mercator Sha pe and angles make close-up shots of cities more accurate - a 90-degree left turn on the map is a 90-degree left turn on the road you are driving on. But when trying to display something on a world map, cartographers seldom use the Mercator; most modern day cartographers have opted for a variety of non-rectangular projections that split the difference between a complete distortion of size or shape.
In 1998 the National Geographic Society adopted the Winkel-Tripel projection because it strikes a comfortable balance between size and accuracy, but the fact remains that there is no real projection. Cartographers and mathematicians have created a huge library of available projections, each with a new perspective on the planet. The best way to see what the earth really looks like is to look at a globe.
As long as we are using flat maps, we will be concerned with the tradeoffs of projections. Remember: there is no right answer.
