Here goes - "So What?
I lied, you mentally deranged dotard!! Prepare for fire and fury," screamed angrily the taller and plumper man. It always fascinates me to read the words 'blackhole' and 'proton' in the same sentence or talks about what would happen in the millionth of second after trillion trillion years.
Mere extent of scale boggles the mind. Predicting future is a favorite activity of students of astrology and astronomy alike.
Does the universe end with a big crunch or freeze itself to death? Is there a purpose to this life or life is meaningless or the meaning of life could be never found out before it ends? Hope that these questions don't come up to your mind when you are sitting alone on the banks of a big serene river, lest it would make you depressed.
Loved the concluding remarks by Davies - "If there is a purpose to the universe, and it achieves that purpose, then the universe must end, for its continued existence would be gratuitous and pointless. Conversely, if the universe endures forever, it is hard to imagine that there is any ultimate purpose to the universe at all. So cosmic death may be the price that has to be paid for cosmic success.
Perhaps the most that we can hope for is that the purpose of the universe becomes known to our descendants before the end of the last three minutes. Mar 08, Zulfiya rated it liked it. I like reading science books, and I like reading about cosmology, but this book missed the target with me. The intro was engaging, and I somehow thought that the author would focus more on the possible demises for the Earth, but he moved to bigger things as the title promised, and it was I did find some explanations and arguments convincing and interesting and accessible even to laymen, but the scientific story of the end of the universe did not cohere in this rendition.
On the other h I like reading science books, and I like reading about cosmology, but this book missed the target with me. On the other hand, I liked how the authot addressed the questions of futility of our existence and offered a ray of hope when he introduced the concept of multiverse. Mostl likely I would have given this book a 4 star review if I had not been listening to it while driving. Then it is truly - mea culpa.

But even when he was telling me something he knew, he was so overly dramatic as to elicit glee. And by the time he was throwing out calculations as to how to build a superbeing that can overcome the burning inferno of the final contraction of the universe, I had already regained my failing libido, and more.

This book was quite interesting. The cover pretty much sums it up. Ever since people figured out that the Universe is expanding, it immediately followed that it must have had a beginning. Before this, many scientists merely assumed that the Universe just lasted for an infinite amount of time. Given that the Universe had a beginning it must also end sooner or later. The matter of how it will end is up for speculation and there are several possible ways. None of these ways are particularly pleasan This book was quite interesting.
None of these ways are particularly pleasant, but I can take solace in the fact that I will be long dead by the time all of this comes to pass. We're not talking about decades, in this case, we are not even talking about millennia.
I maintain that this is a perfectly lovely tradition. Her crime reporting is, and helped create, Miami history. Read: A film noir photo essay on the secretive world of Swiss banks. The year-old Wayne Winton from Tri-County Locksmith once saw an old safe being used as a side table at a Colorado newspaper office. The pool is surrounded by palm trees heavy with crows.
Billions of years must pass before any of this even comes close to happening. By that time the sun will run out of Hydrogen Fuel to use and will start to use Helium to fuel itself. At that point, the Sun will expand until it engulfs the orbit of Venus and the oceans will boil away.
Of course, we could also be destroyed by a giant asteroid or some other space object. This too would take a while, but we are protected in the sense that space is massive, and the Earth is relatively small in it. So then there are other ways for our Galaxy to Bite the Bullet, so to speak. It could collide into another Galaxy, There could be a Giant Black Hole that sucks us into itself, but none of these events are very likely. The ultimate end of the Universe depends on two things. The first is the amount of mass in the Universe, and the second is the rate of expansion of the Universe.
Now, these are generally called the Big Crunch or the Big Freeze. This is generally what I call them. Either the Universe collapses back on itself, or it expands so much that new stars cannot be born. All of the stars will eventually become either Black Holes or Black Dwarfs, massive chunks of matter that are mere husks of what they were. None of this is really important, though, since I will be long dead by the time all of this happens, unless they find some way for me to become a Star Child a la A Space Odyssey.
