The universe has been around for roughly 13.8 billion years and modern-day humans have existed for 200,000 years – just 0.00145 per cent of all time.

Seems to be the inevitable, doesn't it? Just like everything that has lived up until now, humans will eventually die out. Or at least humans as we recognize them.
From the beginning of time, what has been the one constant? What is still here now that has always been?

Interesting read and I don't mind Brian Cox. But to turn around and say civilisations will kill themselves off is a bit far fetched. How does he know this? Is he simply trying say that all civilisations would be like human. We only have evidence of one race that kills its self and that's us. I'd like to think an advanced civilisation have gone past the point where hey feel the need to kill each other for power and resources
