Father Consoles 9 Year Old Son Crying About End Of The World

I caught my 9-year-old son crying in his bed after he watched a YouTube video and found out the Earth will die in a billions of years (according to Wikipedia it will happen when the sun becomes a red giant and consumes the earth in about 7 billion years).

I tried my best to make my son feel better by telling him that if he works hard he has the opportunity to build space ships that can allow humans to migrate to other planets. This idea has since motivated him to do well in school. He wants to save humanity.

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who was the second man to step on the moon, encouraging space exploration companies and NASA to have humans physically study planet Mars, sells a t-shirt that reads, "Get Your Ass To Mars."
