Science Saturday – The Future Is Here

BBC Future takes a look of what will likely happen in the far future, from 1,000 years to one hundred quintillion (100,000,000,000,000,000,000) years.

The following are some notable predictions that are frightening:-

  • 2,000 yrs – Greenland’s ice sheet will have melted (assuming aggressive global warming).
  • 13,000 yrs – The Earth will have rotated, with the Northern hemisphere facing the Sun. This will cause more extreme weather and devastation.
  • 20,000 yrs – Chernobyl will finally be deemed SAFE!
  • 5,000,000 yrs – MEN will become extinct due to the disappearance of the Y chromosome.
  • 1,000,000,000 – The Sun’s luminosity becomes SO strong that life cannot survive on Earth.

Better write some of this stuff into my diary 😉
