The Last Star in the Universe – Red Dwarfs Explained

  • Published: 31 January 2016
  • The last star in the universe will be a red dwarf. Red dwarfs in general might be great places to look for aliens – or planets for humans to find a new home after our solar system has died.

      Even when the universe dies, id like to think something cool happens like everything goes through the black holes and feeds into another universe and feeds another people with materials for ages.

      But in the far future we would be able to develop or create our own star by sqeezing molecules while ionizing it but this is just a theory of my own

                This not make sense it take 5 billion years to our sun even to start red giant phase who the hell think humanity is even exist then or quintillion of years when last stars die out😂 we may have couple of centuries left and then we go extinct or if we not lost touch our technology we just merge it and become something else, that point we can't no longer describe as humans or human condition not bind us.

                  You could carry on tapping black holes for energy after the last Red dwarf is dead.

                            I love how arrogant humans are. You can't even see to the edge of the Solar System but somehow know what happens in trillions of years despite the universe not even being 15 billion. Lmfao. This is why ETs are disappointed in us.
