How will the Universe End? Amazing simulation shows how!
How will the Universe end? I wonder what will happen to life on Earth after a billion years? Here are some questions that Joe Hanson (@jtotheizzoe) provides an answer to, through an interesting simulation where he takes us on a journey from near future to far future, and ultimately shows us how the universe might come to an end.
The video entitled “The Far Future of the Universe” shows what happens over billions of years into the future, but starts with the postulation that most people on Earth alive today won’t be around in 100 years.
Thus, over 100,000 years, our galaxy will change its position and the night sky will look very different from what we see now.
Over the next 500,000 years , the Earth will be hit by a large asteroid that will lead to climate change.
In about 600 million years, photosynthesis would be impossible on our planet because of the increasing amount of carbon dioxide in the crust, and over a billion years life will disappear, because the sun will become very strong and oceans will boil.
After more than 4 billion years, our galaxy will collide with the Andromeda galaxy.
In about 8 billion years our sun will run out of fuel, it will expand and destroy the planets Mercury and Venus, then it will transform into a white dwarf.
After 150 years after this point, galaxies will move a lot and will not be visible from Earth, because the Universe will continue to expand.
After 110 trillion years, all the stars will consume their fuel and will burn out, and then everything will be dark, says Hanson.
When you pass a quadrillion years, the remains of our planet will be attracted to the sun which already turned into a black dwarf.
All that will remain in the field will be expanded so much that even the smallest particle of matter will disappear. Therefore the Universe will be empty.
But this is just one of the theories about the ultimate fate of the universe. According to another theory, the Big Crunch will lead to a new Big Bang, ultimately to a new start.
