Boo I seen a movie called Solar Flare(or something).
A super flare was building on the sun that would scorch the earth, so the most retarded scientist on earth said “Let take a crack team to the sun and set off a nuke INSIDE THE FLIPPING SUN(like that would bother a pimple on the sun) to trigger the flare early to miss the earth!” And how he wasn’t laugh out of the planning room, I DONT KNOW!
Well by the end, the whole thing is sabotaged, people are dead, and the hero had to pull a Bruce Willis in Armageddon to save the earth, and fly the nuke TO THE SUN(like they could miss it)…
Pretty sure you’re talking about Sunshine, and the plot was actually worse than that. The problem wasn’t a solar flare, rather, the sun was burning out because ~reasons~ and they were using the nuke to juice 'er back up.
Hmm… solar fusion mixed with nuclear fission. They’re opposites, so they must do interesting things when they mix.
(/sarcasm, I sure as shit don’t want to be known for thinking this to be true).
I would literally have nightmares after watching that. A horde of stupid people trying to convince me that nukes can magically “restart” a sun or stop a hurricane, while making sure I don’t get vaccinated and offering me tidepod appetizers while they prove to me that the Earth is flat.
What you’re doing is commendable but ultimately it’s a waste of time.
Now if you’re looking to make some safe spots, I suggest after warping to the Sun, position your ship to go straight up or down and let it travel in that direction for a while and then bookmark the spots. They also make great scanning spots for exploration too, especially if you have a cloak.
Speaking of exploration, click on the sun right after jumping into a system, select warp to 0 and immediately launch probes, then while in warp activate Covert Ops cloak. After exiting warp at the Sun, position your ship and start traveling as I mentioned before. That allows you to scan for exploration sites without having your cloak disrupted if somebody else by chance happens to warp there as well.
