So the other topic reminded me of this news for those of you that hadn't heard yet. Space is cool!

https://theconversation.com/dont-panic-but-the-universe-is-slowly-dying-45779


Less dramatic, and more likely given our current knowledge, is the theory that the universe will continue to cool forever, and non gravitationally bound structures will steadily move apart from each other. After trillions of years we will only be able to see our own galaxy as the others will have raced too far away. After hundreds of trillions of years no new stars will be made anywhere at all.

Next our galaxy will eject most of its remaining stars into the cosmic void, and what is left will collapse into our central black hole. All matter as we know it will eventually decay, the black holes will evaporate and what is left will be a very lonely and empty place.

The universe will have ceased converting mass into light, and it will be left in almost total darkness. Every once in a while the remaining photons, electrons, positrons and neutrinos will meet and dance, but they will soon continue their solitary journeys. The universe, in any sense that we know it today, will be over.

The phase we are in now could be considered to be the slow death throes of the universe.

Billions of years away.

Well, I'll still be around I guess.

That's dark energy man. Gotta forgo the bills and steal the gas. Blame it on the universe dying.

Hundreds of trillions. The universe hasn't even been around for 2% of one trillion years yet.

Weeell, the idea of universe dying is also nothing new. They're just telling us more about the rate in which its going.
