Yo i thought of a way how humankind could survive the cold-death of the universe. I know its just a theory but please follow me on this. So we know if humans survive long enough we can become an atleast type 2 society. If we get this far we could decompose dead stars and gas planets drive them both together and create a star artificially. I must admit i know very little about it but it could be possible. I mean we could create a dyson sphere or smthng around it and transport it via an hyperspace engine to a gas planet decompose both and see the star form it self. With decompose i mean blowing them up but with much less boom ya know? Maybe a laser of sorts or other things. Its crazy i know but it sounds great in theory. Waht do you think? Let me know ^^

sounds like a black hole, because they would also eat up light making them black

When we have enough technology (like advanced particle accelerators) we can use strangelets as weapons! Most efficient celestial body destroying method ever.

So we were gearing a black hole hitting us and consuming us, but we had zero idea a flying stranglet drop can turn us into another matter that also kills us, clap clap.

imagine super advanced alien civilizations using strangelets to purge entire solar systems, that is mind blowing.

Its the false vaccum thing that keeps me up at night. Strangelets are a spooky concept, but probably not a thing, or it would have wrecked us by now. But the vaccum energy of the universe is fundamental, and with a bit of math you can plot out ways of breaking it, as implausibly difficult as it would be. And thats not "weird shit eats a star", thats "nothingness eats a universe"

So if this strange matter is virtually indestructible then how come it seems to be so rare i.e. we haven't observed it?
