If heat rises, why don't fires just float away?
They do apparently.

Seeing as you're on the topic of stars...

Imagine in your hand is a device which for all intents and purposes complies with the laws of physics and is hypothetically possible.

Let us assume that our Sun is the size of a red or blue giant such that at the end stages of it's life it will explode as a supernova, destroying our planet. Let us also assume that this is an instantaneous event.

The Sun is about to blow up. The device you hold in your hand has a button. If you press this button, it will delay the supernova for about 1 day. The device also becomes inactivated after using it so you cannot continuously delay the button.

By delaying the supernova, it gives time for Project Exo to commence. This Project is a global initiative that can transport the whole of humanity from earth to a new planet, preferably an exoplanet with similar conditions to Earth. We can therefore all leave Earth in mega-spacecrafts and establish a new planetary home.

If you don't press the button, the Sun will explode. Project Exo cannot react quickly enough and the entire planet is destroyed.

Do you press the button and take the risk of continuing the survival of humanity on a new planet? (You decide whether we find a new planet or not, as long as we leave Earth)
Or do you leave your device untouched, destroying everyone and everything on this planet, allowing all the elements to return to the cosmos?

Choose.

I don't know.. have you read that without thinking?

I like this word: obviously.
Why 'obviously'? Why is pressing the button, and thus attempting to save the entire human species, such a seemingly obvious action to do, so much so that anyone who dares question otherwise is an insane individual for not realising how pressing this button is undoubtedly the action that should be done nay must be done?

*ahem*
Why 'obviously'?
I mean, you have the option to not press the button at all.
Maybe this is some other information: absolutely nobody knows you have this device nor do they know such a device exists. The only people who knows it's existence and location are you and the people you wish to reveal this information to.
