Is it possible to create a planet entirely from scratch?
Humanity's Response to Earth's Impermanence and the Feasibility of Crafting New Worlds Inevitably, Earth's existence is finite, whether due to human activities or natural cosmic events like a colossal meteor impact. In such a scenario, our species faces the imperative of expanding beyond our home planet. However, the complexity of space travel, particularly interstellar journeys, raises doubts about its feasibility. Consequently, the idea of constructing an entirely new planet has emerged, a concept frequently depicted in science fiction, from Star Wars' Death Star to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy's planet-building facility and even more ambitious endeavors like Dyson Spheres.

Let's take a closer look at what unfolds during these intense solar periods.
