This week, we take a look at one of the most ambitious space movies of the past year, The Wandering Earth. Joined by Sarafina Nance, astrophysics PhD student at UC Berkeley, we discuss the film’s idea of moving the Earth out of our solar system to find a new home four light years away. Would that undertaking be possible?
