I was smoking a joint the other day and started wondering if earth will ever become a star If it gets blown up by technology, fire, and nuclear reactions.

No. Stars are nuclear fusion reactors. Hydrogen converted to helium under immerse gravitational pressure.

At the very worst it could become a Venus-like hellscape with a runaway greenhouse effect. Though that's probably unlikely.

I’m surprised a member of this particular forum didn’t know that. Perhaps the dope..

if we managed to make Saturn collide with Jupiter, do you think the critical mass would be reached to make the mix flash up?

Doubt it. Even if you put all the planets together as well as the asteroids and comets the Sun is still 30 times that mass.

thanks for the data, I knew that Saturn and Jupiter style gas giants were stars to small to light up , I didn't know by what order of size.

No. It might become part of one, when the Sun expands into a red giant and eats us up.

Saturn is about as far from Jupiter as Jupiter is from the Sun. Getting them close enough to collide would be quite a feat.

If Uranus tells Saturn that Jupiter has been sleeping with his wife then that could really blow up big time.
