TIMELAPSE OF THE FUTURE: A Journey to the End of Time (4K)

  • Published: 20 March 2019
  • Support my work on Patreon: www.patreon.com/melodysheep | Get the soundtrack: bit.ly/2HKl9fi | How's it all gonna end? This experience takes us on a journey to the end of time, trillions of years into the future, to discover what the fate of our planet and our universe may ultimately be.
    We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos - to name a few.
    This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science - a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent - and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found.
    To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective - that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away. Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.
    Featuring the voices of David Attenborough, Craig Childs, Brian Cox, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michelle Thaller, Lawrence Krauss, Michio Kaku, Mike Rowe, Phil Plait, Janna Levin, Stephen Hawking, Sean Carroll, Alex Filippenko, and Martin Rees.

                  I laugh cuz all this is mentioned in the quran, but i think the universe will stretch like a rubberband and collide into a black whole which will make a new universe with new dimensions.

                                      For future generations: If you're reading this comment. I just want you to know that I am from 2000s. If by chance, you read this I think I already passed away. I just want to ask, how is the Earth going? I know, that we humans from the past generation have destroyed our world. Sorry, we failed as a human. I think if you're reading this right now. Maybe the trees are already rare or maybe already extinct. I think oxygen is already limited. I think water is already gone. I think all of the natural things existing are already unexisting. I just want to say how beautiful is but its already unpleasant now. If you're are still living by now. I think you're one of the luckiest and if you are please find a way to get back the real Earth. I know you can do it. Everything have a way. Every problem has solution.

                                        It's insane how without life or stars or planets the universe keeps on moving, black holes carry on, they die creating spectacular and beautiful shows of lights illuminating the universe for a very short time before the light dissapates and vanishes forever, the universe carries on creating beautiful works of art only for them to fall on blind eyes. The universe really has no purpose nothing ever does. Things happen do to random series of events with no meaning to them at all. The universe has no goals or purpose it's just standing in an endless ocean if equally unimportant and meaningless universes and each of those universes will continue to flick off for eternity.

                                                        Knowing that every direction human civilization can take will end in their own termination and doom, alone, in a dark universe within enough time no matter how hard we try... really keeps me up at night.

Let me tell you sth I made a big mistake because after that I remember having nightmares about our planet being sucked by a black hole or a weird object hitting our planet. It was terrible. My parents would be talking to me and I'll be thinking WE'RE ALL DOOMED! Please, if you have kids don't let them watch such things. well, I'm still traumatized, so I guess I won't be watching this LOL 😕

I was showing my dumbass wife a timeline of what would happen to the universe cause her idiot ass actually asked me "How many planets have we been on?" and "how long does it take for the earth to go around the sun?". So I came here to enlighten her ignorant ass, but I only thought that after proton decay that, that would be the end of the universe. I'm happy to got to learn of the stages that came after. Amazing video.
