The End Is Nigh !!
« on: 21/02/2006 19:45:49 »
I'm really worried because in 25 Billion years the Andromeda Galaxy is going to collide with the Milky Way. Those of you without insurance really ought to consider it.

Fact is, the future of our Universe is rather grim, eventually all the stars in all the galaxies will dim and won't be replaced...eventually, even the black holes and Super Massive black holes will evaporate away (according to Hawking)....and should you wish to gaze up into the sky all you will see is black nothingness, eveything would have expanded away and ceased to be.

It's depressing  to know that eventually ' nothingness ' will prevail :(

Can anyone offer me a glimmer of hope ?

Well Neilep,
it is possible that the universe is closed:-
"" If there is enough matter in the universe to stop the expansion associated with the big bang, we say that the universe is closed. In a closed universe, the current period of expansion will be followed by a period of contraction (sometimes called the Big Crunch) as the gravitational force pulls matter back in. Searching for matter to “close” the universe is a major task of modern cosmology. (See also dark matter, flat universe, and open universe.)""
http://www.answers.com/topic/closed-universe

After the "Big crunch" there would be another "big bang" and the universe would be reborn.

Thanks Robert...my happy disposition is growing by the minute....but I thought it was proven that not only is the Universe expanding but it's accelerating in it's expansion too ! *sigh*

Hawkings radiation is only a theory, as is the (big crunch) or (big rip) think positive they
are only theories, you are a reality, and may be usefull
