Next Solar System Over
Let's say out sun was exploding, and we needed to get out of here.
Our best bet would be to go to the next nearest star, because there might be planets and there is for sure energy.
How far is the next nearest star?
4 light years and a bit.
4?! That's not a big number at all!
So we hop into our RV and start driving at 100 kilometers an hour, straight at that star.
How long till we get there?
Just, uh, 46 million years.
Think of how many generations would come an go in that RV.
And now take into consideration evolution.
The oldest primate fossils ever found are 47 million years old.
