How and when will the end of the world be? Scientists give an answer
The date of the end of the world is one of the original and timeless questions of all humanity. Thousands upon thousands of pages and movie frames have been filled with fantasies about when that would be and how it could be prevented.
Ancient civilizations like theMayas they made calculations in the calendar and dated the apocalypse: the world was going to end on December 21, 2012. But years later, the American scientistPaolo Tagaloguin Because of a calculation error, 11 days per year were not added to the Mayan date.
“We use the Gregorian calendar for 268 years (1752 to 2020). At 11 days per year, we lost 2,948 days. And 2,948 days divided by 365 (days in a year) is a total of 8 years. Following this theory, we are in 2012,” he assured. Tagalog. In other words, the end of the world should have been be Sunday, June 21, 2020.
A meteorite impact?
From then on, every time a meteorite, asteroid or any potentially dangerous object passes close to Earth, there is talk that it could hit it and cause damage or end the world as we know it. . And also, scientists are constantly warning that global warming could become “catastrophic” for humanity. In fact, an international team of researchers led by the University of Cambridge has already warned Last August, it was stated that there could be scenarios such as the loss of 10% of the world's population or even the eventual human extinction.
Recently, artificial intelligence(AI) tools have begun to be used to inquire about the aspect of the our species and the environmentthat surrounds us once the day of doomsday arrives. To achieve this, several users have asked different AIs what a selfie taken during the end of the world would look like. The different platforms agree in showing images of people with corpseless and deformed faces, in addition to landscapes apocalyptic totally burned down.
By the king of stars
Now, based on a report, scientists from the European Space Agency (ESA) in English) they think they know what it will be like. the process of the end of the Sun's activity, which they link directly with the end of the planet.
At this time, the Sun is in its main sequence phase, that is, where the nucleus manages to transform hydrogen into helium, which generates energy expressed in the form of brightness and heat. But according to calculations made from ESA's Gaia spacecraft data, the Solo will become It turned into a giant red star when it is between 10 and 11 billion years old (it is now 4.67 billion years old), thus reaching at the end of his life.
But when the Sun is about 8,000 million years old, there will be It has been increased in size by 10% from its current size, which will a deadly temperature increase for the human species.
That is, scientists calculate that the end of the world will occur when the world ends. It will be around 6,000-8,000 years from now, but by then, humanity will already have about 2,000 or 3,000 years extinct. In other words, the ESA reports agree with those scientists who predict that the end of the world is near. totally linked to global warming.
