    Given that JJ Abrams is handling future cosmology, all discussions about the fate of the universe will be moved to SMAL.

    If we replace the Moon with Mars, we could move our Moon into orbit around Venus - two tasks accomplished.

    The planets inside of Mercury's orbit will be called Vulcans (Vulcan I, Vulcan II, etc.).

    Though personally I like Satupiter more than Jaturn.

    Planet X also turns out to be Nibiru, but Godzilla has eaten all the aliens there.

    I wonder if we strip all the gas off of Uranus, if we could use its core as our super-Earth? We could put that in Mars' former orbit.

    Yes, or as a moon of the brown dwarf Nemesis.

    I need to stop thinking about this, but if Venus had oceans full of sea monsters, I would be happier with the state of the Solar System. And Jaturn would be 80 Jupiter masses (a brown dwarf) with all the satellites of Jupiter and Saturn, plus 200 more, some of them with methane-based life.

    Also, Vulcan would be a super-Earth exactly like 55 Cancri e, orbiting the Sun in less than a day, with lava oceans. Thank you.
