Before the Oblivion

Here’s something to cheer you all up!
  • In 10^100 years, scientists say matter will collapse into itself and there will be no universe left!
  • But before that can happen, scientists say in about 5 billion years, the sun will turn into a red giant and scorch and swallow earth or planet Mercury could crash into earth!
  • But before that can happen, scientists say the next ice age (yes, ice age – not global warming) or a ‘magnetic reversal’ could finish us off in as little as a few hundred years!
  • But before that can happen, a rogue asteroid strike can finish off any day now!
Funny and mildly depressing to think that no matter what, humanity’s fate over the very long range is nothingness and extinction. While the human race is still around, let’s raise a glass to tomorrow!
Side Note: Considering this, are you still at peace for not doing what you always wanted to do?
P.S: Thanks to dear friend of mine (Vinay Tatiraju) for sharing the data and perspective.
