Other then a few observable galaxies that have a slight blue shift we haven't seen any evidence that the universe itself is in blue shift. This would indicate that it is collapsing back in on itself. There is some theory though that this won't happen and it will constitute to expand until it just dissipates. In either case it will happen long after the earth is gone and humanity as we know it is dead.

Feeling blue? Cheer up! You'll be dead soon enough, in an unfeeling blackness. Meanwhile, there's Arbys. Please eat at Arbys.

We aren't mopping the floors tonight because f--k it. All Arby's locations will eventually be destroyed in war or sucked back into the sun.

What's with people and their obsession with the end of the world and now with the end of the universe? first the religious nuts and now the scientists...I don't really care since I have only a few years to live and the universe will end when I die.

The world isn't infinite, just like mankind, so of course it is.

Sounds depressing. But all things come to an end.

The universe may well be infinite. Or it may not.

Either answer has some pretty severe implications.

It's an interesting theory, but heat death/big freeze is only that; a theory.
We do not know what Dark Matter is, we do not know what its true purpose and application is.
We do not know if Dark Matter is as abundant as one might think.

To counter the heat death scenario, you could go ahead and look at one of the more integral structures in the theory which are required for it to make sense. I'm referring to black holes, a phenomenon, who's very existence has come into the limelight in questioning.
Note that as a bi-product of Einstein's theory of general relativity, he was actually already back then sceptical on the existence of them.

This woman however, has gone on record to say that she can even prove they don't exist

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2769156/Black-holes-NOT-exist-Big-Bang-Theory-wrong-claims-scientist-maths-prove-it.html

This would be interesting and equally frightening as the heat death theory.
Either way, truth is stranger than fiction. but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; truth isn't.

If you make a contact with me and make a wish we can help solve this issue...

All it requires is your soul.

joke aside yeah heard multiple theories of how it will die, Big rip, Big crunch, death by cold as it keeps expanding to infinity. But not for a few dozen or so billion years or more.

Well it's suggested that the universe is currently somewhere between 13.7 billion and 14 billion years old, and it is speculated that it's only halfway through it's life cycle, meaning the universe still has a good 13-14 billion years in it before everything returns to the void.

That's only the current theory though as our most powerful instruments can only see 13.7 billion years or so into the past, looking outwards into space. It could be that in the next 5-15 years we develop a new piece of technology that lets us see further, showing us that the universe is in fact over 20 billion years old or so.

Did you know that when you look at the sun, you don't actually see the sun where it currently is, but where it was 8 minutes ago? Just think, the next time you watch a sunset and you see just a sliver of the sun over the horizon, you're actually looking at the past. And to answer any possible questions, that's because it takes the light from the sun 8 minutes to travel from the surface of the sun to Earth.

Apparently, as he tells it, Woody Allen really WAS his 10-yo. self from Annie Hall, growing up:

(Which is why he turned into such a pretentious gloomy-gus in the 80's, and tried to rub his atheism in our face because he didn't know why the rest of us were so happy. )

Well, I support the claim that the universe will end soon, so reading this does not surprise me one bit.
