The projected end is, reassuringly, 20 billion years away.
I dont buy it for a second.
How do you explain documentaries like Star Trek and Star Wars??
We'll be fine, and it doesnt even really matter to us anyways, lets the kids worry about it.
For the big rip to be true, we would have to be accelerating at an increasing rate, which is just not proven. It would mean that every billion years, the critical rate of expansion would increase by 10 percent to reach the estimated speed of light in 20 billion years. There is no way to prove that.
Secondly, the suns heat will destroy the earth, not the the entire universe which is what they are referring to. That wont matter though, because in order for organic life to sustain for a long period of time, we would have to find a white dwarf to live off of, which will be hard considering they are light years away and we cant travel at the speed of light.
Life will be irrelevant, billions of years before our sun dies. So dont worry about the so called "big rip".
I agree with you,
Again I remind you, that by then our mission will be as such;
Damn what a response... do you work for NASA?
I love stuff like that. Just makes your head spin.
