What the Future Really Holds for Planet Earth (3 pics + 2 gifs)

Posted in Random » Interesting   16 May 2014   / 7338 views

In 600 million years the sun will have caused so much carbon dioxide to be trapped in Earth's crust that photosynthesis will cease says Hanson, leading to all multicellular life being eradicated. By the billion-year mark, all oceans and life will have disappeared from the surface of Earth, leaving it looking somewhat like Mars
In four billion years our Milky Way will collide with the Andromeda galaxy but, owing to the huge spaces between stars, it is unlikely many collisions will occur. In fact, it's possible that only six out of a total of a trillion stars will hit each other
In 7.9 billion years, when our sun runs out of gas, it starts to expand and consumers the inner planets Mercury and Venus before deflating into a white dwarf 1.6 billion years later
In 110 trillion years all stars will have died out while in a quadrillion years our planet, now a lifeless hunk of rock, will fall into what is left of the sun (now a black dwarf) as its orbit decays
Ultimately the universe will continue to expand until everything in it is dead. All matter will be so spread out than, in essence, nothing will remain and the cosmos will be completely empty, says Hanson

well before #4 and #5, the big rip will possibly occur.

this is due to dark energy and the fact that the universe is expanding faster and faster. eventually the four elemental forces will no longer be able to exert influence over matter / energy, according to the theory.
It will all be worth it if America ceases to exist.
Modern science:
-Can't accurately predict what the weather will be like in 3 days.
-Knows what the universe will be like aeons from now.

The human race will eradicate itself, and irreversibly contaminate the planet, killing everything else, LONG before any astronomical phenomena pose a danger. The only other possibility is a global-killing meteorite, which may pre-empt this.

not so much that science considers itself infallible, but that people consistently misunderstand and misapply the proper concept of theory, i.e. more than just an untested idea, less than something without a margin of error.

but yea... humanity and the planet as we now know it is very likely toast. still, life goes on until the bitter end... imagination goes on until the final crash.
