Scientist Calculates the ‘Sad, Lonely’ End of the Universe

When the universe as we know it “dies,” it will be “a bit of a sad, lonely, cold place,” theoretical physicist Matt Caplan, an assistant professor of physics at Illinois State University, said in a statement. In a new study, Caplan calculated how dead stars might change over time and determined when the last supernova will explode in the universe’s distant future. The universe’s end is “known as ‘heat death,’ where the universe will be mostly black holes and burned-out stars,” Caplan explained in the statement.
