Astronomy makes many predictions about the evolution of the future cosmos. This includes answers to questions like:

  • How will the Earth change and when will the Earth come to an end?
  • When will life on Earth end?
  • How will the Sun change and when will the Sun burn out.
  • When and how will the Galaxy end?
  • What will happen to the stars in the sky?
  • What is the future of the universe:  A big bounce, a big freeze, or a big rip?
  • Will time itself come to an end?

Prof. Mathews will describe a journey backward and forward through cosmic time as a means to explore these questions and provide some surprising answers.
