    Not sure why there’s anyone would think of that...being too close can already burn you, bringing it here to earth, it’d be like nuclear bomb or lava but worse, so bad you’d just want it to be a black hole instead so you can die swiftly without suffering, and you’d wish there’s no asteroid or moon comes, you’ll have to suffer a perfect hell... oh I love the Universe and Space. please don’t add people names have definitions of or rhymes with “sun” or “star” or “moon”, no offense at all ‘cause those are all beautiful names but you know it’s irrelevant 😂 but no one nowadays want to suffer at all so they’d try kill anything made them suffer, which we have earth destroyed. Oh wait, isn’t it already being destroyed...
