‘That is extremely terrifying.’ According to a physicist, the fate of the Earth is ‘at the mercy’ of the cosmic components.
According to scientist Katie Mack, the cosmos and everything we love about it will end one day, which is a terrifying thought because it implies that our planet is at the mercy of cosmic whims.
Either a bang or a whimper will herald the end of the planet, and both are equally unappealing. According to one theory, the Universe’s unending expansion of space would eventually lead to the “Big Rip,” a state in which matter disintegrates at the subatomic level. Another doomsday theory claims that the Universe will perish owing to so-called vacuum decay.
Random quantum fluctuations in the Higgs Field, which pervades the entire Universe, may release a “cosmic bubble of doom” in this scenario, wiping out all life as we know it.
The Big Crunch theory predicts that the Universe will collide in on itself, reversing the Big Bang.
All of these scenarios, as well as many more, are just hypothetical at this time, and there is no guarantee that they will ever happen – at least not in the foreseeable future.
They do, however, serve as a reminder of the many mysteries about how the cosmos works and our place in it that scientists are still trying to solve.
In her latest book, The End of Everything, cosmologist Katie Mack attempts to peer behind the cosmic curtain (Astrophysically speaking).
The book investigates all of the numerous apocalyptic scenarios that science has projected may occur at some point in the future, addressing the fundamental question, “What happens at the end of the story?”
Hugo Rifkind and Dr. Mack recently promoted her book on Radio Times.
She discussed the chances of these end-of-the-world scenarios occurring, as well as whether or not you should be concerned.
To begin the conversation, Mr Rifkind stated, “I’ve always imagined that when the end of the Universe comes, we’ll have some warning.” A few million years’ notice is possible.
What will happen when the universe ends? Is it going to happen all of a sudden, or will a million-year warning be issued?
There is still a lot of confusion about this, according to cosmologist and author Katie Mack.
