Watch beautiful science fiction videos, learn astrophysics and check your knowledge with quizzes!
It’s better to start from the bottom of this page 😉
Cosmic microwave background
The cosmic microwave background is electromagnetic radiation as a remnant from an early stage of the universe, also known as “relic radiation” – faint cosmic background radiation filling all space and an important source of data on the early universe.
The last star in the universe will be a red dwarf. Red dwarfs in general might be great places to look for aliens – or planets for humans to find a new home after our solar system has died.
A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying. Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special tools can see how stars that are very close to black holes act differently than other stars.
Neutron stars are one of the most ambitious and dangerous objects in the universe. Huge atomic nuclei with a diameter of only a few kilometers but with a mass like stars. And the reason for their existence is the death of something magnificent.
Everything will end. Even the universe. But in a future so far away that it defies description, there will still be light and therefore a chance for life. It will be around White Dwarfs, the corpses of stars. But even they will fade one day
Timelapse of the future: A journey to the end of the world
The video begins in 2019 and travels exponentially in time, watching the future of the Earth, the death of the Sun, the end of all stars, the decay of protons, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, dark energy effects, alternative universes and the final fate of the space . Russian subtitles are available.
