Timeline Of The Far (not so bright) Future

What can we expect in 1.000, 10.000, a million, and even 10 quintillion years?
BBC Future tries to answer this question by peeking into Earth’s future and predicting some changes that might affect the world.

According to BBC speculative timeline, based on researches from NASA, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, and many others, there are some good chances for the Universe to collapse in the far off years to come.

A global disaster will affect us, buildings will decay, humans will go extinct, life on our Planet will end, the Sun will evolve into a red giant, and in the end the Earth will die. Unfortunately we won’t be around to witness all this, but maybe it’s a good thing!

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
