About this book

Although we may try to keep it hidden in the back of our minds, most of us are aware of our own mortality. But few among us know what science, with the help of insights yielded from groundbreaking new research, has to say about death on a larger scale. In "How it Ends", astronomer Chris Impey chronicles the death of the whole shebang: individual, species, biosphere, earth, sun, Milky Way and, finally, the entire universe. With a healthy dose of humor, he illuminates everything from the technologies of human life extension and the evolutionary arms race between microbes and men to the inescapable dimming of the sun and the ultimate 'big rip', giving us a rare glimpse into a universe without us.
