Nomad planets’ may pack the Milky Way

Nomad planets’ may pack the Milky Way

“Nomad planets” may fill the Milky Way, according to a new study by researchers at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC). “Nomad planets” are special because they do not orbit a star like Earth, but wander through space without a home. There may be as many as 100,000 times more “nomad planets” in the Milky Way than there are stars.

end quote. 

If there truly are more "Nomad Planets" than stars in the Milky Way, are they all Nomadic because of accidents or are some Like "Spaceship Earths", a concept of breaking free from a star before it explodes? I have often wondered whether a civilization faced with solar weather changes that would not be survivable could "Move their planet out of harms way or even outside their Solar system or wherever that planet may be from. So, maybe a Spaceship earth might be possible too rather than going extinct as a planet and as a human race in some future time.

Also, if it is possible to create a technological small fusion sun around the orbit of the moon it also might be possible to leave the Solar system and still have a man created little sun nearer that could do the same job and keep us lighted and warm.
