What other humans said
“An intense experience, which is visually so overwhelming that you wish to slow down, and take some time to look around. But it simply isn’t possible to shift gear in a time machine.”
—Rob van Hattum, Chief Science Officer NEMO Science Museum
Travel log: 1,000,000 years from now, a meteorite hits the Earth. A period of cooling follows. A new ice age.
"Pure joy! It was such a tremendous experience, one that sparked my imagination for what the world could be in the future to come."
—Khanh Nguyen, In House Digital Activation at Philips
Travel log: 1,000,000,000 years from now, an intellegent life force seems to have fused underground and risen from beneath the ice.
Travel log: 1,000,000,000,000 years from now. The sun runs out of energy. Ultimately it swallows the Earth.
