    So, we have ten years to evacuate the planet (e.g. neutron star, gamma ray burst, unexpected cosmic event etc etc).

    Do you think we could evacuate everyone? Or would only a few go?

    Would we stop petty wars and pool our resources to not only build (a) starship(s), but also actually aggressively and swiftly locate suitable "Earth 2s"?

    What do you think?

    i think there are already plans for that sort of thing *just in case*

    i think we could do it, if everyone worked together... but i doubt we would. i think it would be every country for itself tbh

    Do you actually think building spaceships/starships sizeable enough to facilitate 7 billion people? The planet itself is barely supporting that many people as it is. Besides if there was going to be an "unexpected cosmic event" that would be endangering life on Earth, how would we be able to "expect" it?
    This reminds of the movie "Pandorum". Very similar to what you're describing.
    Evacuation of the planet is implausible in my opinion, only a fortunate minority would be able to leave the planet at best.
