A scientist describes in excruciating detail how the rapidly expanding universe will ultimately cause a «big tear» that will separate us all
Neil deGrasse Tyson got right to the point and explained how the Earth and the universe will end in an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Tuesday 2 mars
Subjects are something Tyson explores in his new book, Cosmic Queries: StarTalk’s Guide to Who We Are, How We Got Here, and Where We Going The scientist quickly walked through the well-known process by which the Earth will cease to exist – the sun expands, the oceans are boiling, the atmosphere evaporates into space, the Earth turns into charred embers that descend to the center of the sun, how how how – to get to the stuff that really keeps him awake at night: “The Big Rip”, who will end the universe as we know it
“The big tear”, explained Tyson, is linked to the accelerated expansion of the universe, who will end up “get ahead of all the gravitational forces that are currently holding things together.”
He continued: «This will eventually overcome the molecular bonds that hold your flesh together.… The accelerating forces will continue to gain strength as we grow, because it is a property of the void, and the bigger the universe, the more vacuum we have. have And this will continue, tear your molecules, then it will shred your atoms! And then there's a part where it rocks – I shouldn't say «tear, it separates them» – then the very fabric of space and time itself will fall victim to this expansion And we call it «The Big Rip’’
In another part of the interview, Tyson spoke about the increase in missions to Mars from space programs around the world and spoke about the new NASA rover, Perseverance, who has just landed on the planet.
