A random youtube stumbling brought me to this video and I post it in the hope that some of you may enjoy, wonder and be mind blown by it too. It is a
visual depiction of how our universe dies, in its' entirety according to current scientific knowledge. It is quite a long watch but I was amazed and I
hope you will be too. There are audio clips of scientists explaining what is going to happen and why based on what is known and detected by
instruments, measurements and possibly some "best guesses" all in glorious and violent detail.
Personally I'd expected the universe to die relatively (yeah yeah, I know) quickly but it takes way longer than that.
tl;dr Just watch.

Personally, I wasn't too keen on the bit that said "if you make an atom smasher big enough you may be able to create a baby universe". Well.....maybe
it's just me, but I suspect that a baby universe is absolutely #ing enormous, and when one is created, it's created in an extremely violent
fashion....you know, planet and solar system destroying violent fashion....
The universe is currently estimated to be 93 billion light years in diameter. I'm sure there's room for a nursery in the corner behind the large black
hole. I doubt we'd notice anything for a few billion years.
