comment What is the verb for dividing something into regions?
'''Regionalize''' is the only real choice if you want to an obvious connection to "region". The definition is "to divide into regions". It has been around since at least the 1920s according to Merriam-Webster Online. It is usually used in the context of creating administrative/marketing regions, although there is no reason it could not be used in other contexts.

comment Start a subordinate clause with “thus”
Therefore is a conjunctive adverb. It connects ideas logically like a conjunction, but acts gramatically like an adverb. Two independant clauses joined by a conjuctive adverb must either be treated as two sentences or be joined with a semicolon.

comment Objects with no name, like “the Sun”
For the reasons mentioned by @TimLymington, science fiction frequently uses "Sol" to refer specifically to star that is home to Earth. Technically, that name could also be applied by anybody to their own star too for similar reasons, but not in (current) English, so that is sufficent to differentiate. SF writers also tend to use "Terra" for Earth for a similar reason, although admittedly people would be less likely to call their non-Terra planet "Earth", than they are to call their non-Sol star "the Sun".
