There is much speculation about how the universe will meet its ultimate demise. While we know that the universe began with the Big Bang, theories about how it will end are still largely speculative. Some scientists believe that the universe will eventually collapse in on itself in a kind of massive implosion known as the Big Crunch, while others believe that it will simply continue to expand until all the stars have burned out, leading to a state known as Heat Death. Still others believe that the universe’s expansion will accelerate to such a degree that everything will be torn apart in a process known as the Big Rip. While we may not know how the universe will end, it is clear that it will eventually happen, making us mere blips in cosmic history.
