In class, we are talking about what would happen if a meteor hit earth. We can never return to earth and all life will be wiped out. Sadly, the meteor will not wipe out earth too quickly. Humans have the technology to send a rocket up to another planet (or teleport). We can go to different solar systems.
I chose LHS 1140b. It is about 39-41 light years away. There are 10 glass domes containing air on the planet. And there are underground tunnels which are connecting them together. Each dome has about a 4 km diameter. The underground tunnels connecting them are about 1.5 km – 5 km long. There is a door in each passage to stop the air leaking out of the domes if a dome breaks, but the doors only close if a button is pressed, or there is a hole in one of the domes.The glass is about 1 meter thick since people might try to break it to kill everyone. People who try that will be thrown underground where there are lights to light up the space.
Since the air would eventually run out, there are trees growing in dirt brought from earth. There’s also a tunnel leading to the outside. Due to the fact that we would run out of air if the door was left open there are three doors to go through. You can only open the second door if the first is closed, and you can only open the third one when the second one is closed. The same thing goes for the other way around.
All electricity is made with solar panels that is how we get the light underground. The buildings inside the glass dome are made of stone, because wood is very expensive. Two of the glass domes are used for farming and growing trees, most of the birds live in them. Two of the other glass domes house animals such as chickens, sheep, cows, horses, dogs, cats, and foxes. You might think dogs, cats, and foxes aren’t important, but they are, because they keep the others down pretty well. One dome is devoted to school, it contains all the school buildings and class rooms. There is another dome devoted to sports, and swimming. The other four are devoted to homes, and restaurants.
At the schools, they teach the history of why earth was evacuated, and about different stars and the distance to earth in light years. They will also teach how to carve and use stone, math, writing, and reading. Since A year on LHS 1140b is 25 days we start school at age 72.
We will go to nearby planets to melt ice and get water. The toilet system is very important. Half of the poop is used as fertilizer for the trees and food, the other half turns into dirt after about 100 days.
There are about 400 people in each people dome. Wood is very expensive, so only the rich people have wood floors. Also, the coins are made out of wood, the 1 dollar has a picture of the moon, the two dollar has a picture of earth, the five dollar has a picture of Mars, and the twenty dollar has a picture of LHS 1140b.
Since it will take 1525200 years we will use teleporters to get there. One teleporter to LHS 1140b, then the last person at earth will destroy the teleporter then at LHS 1140b we will build a teleporter to teleport the last person to us then destroy that one so the disaster can’t spread through it. We will take the first 1600 people to come to the teleporter. You don’t need tickets to go through the teleporter.
Also since the human population will expand there is quite a lot of underground caverns. The houses in them are made out of the stone that was originally there, because the houses are directly attached to the ground. The light automatically fades the darker it gets. So it is quite common to have lights in your house. When you look up at the light in the rocky sky it looks like stars. Down there (and everywhere) everyone must have 3 or more trees in their yard. Some people build in a stalactite so their trees are in big holes in the rock.
