9780393069853: How It Ends: From You to the Universe

The fascinating science behind the eventual end to everything―from the individual to all existence.

Although we may try to keep it tucked at the back of our minds, most of us are aware of our own mortality. But few among us know what science, with the help of insights yielded from groundbreaking new research, has to say about death on a larger scale. Enter astronomer Chris Impey, who chronicles the death of the whole shebang: individual, species, biosphere, earth, sun, Milky Way, and, finally, the entire universe.

With a healthy dose of humor, How It Ends illuminates everything from the technologies of human life extension and the evolutionary arms race between microbes and men to the inescapable dimming of the sun and the ultimate “big rip,” giving us a rare glimpse into a universe without us. 68 illustrations

About the Author:

Chris Impey is a Distinguished Professor at the University of Arizona. In addition to his critically acclaimed books Beyond, How It Began, and How It Ends, he has written two astronomy textbooks and has won many teaching awards. He lives in Tucson, Arizona.

From Booklist:

A scientific view of the apocalypse unfolds in this tour of terminations. An astronomer by trade, the author eventually addresses how the universe will chill down, but first he explains how you will chill down. Completing his discussion of death with a biological description of the inevitable, Impey tarries with commiserative commentary about its awful finality and with the ideas of technofuturists (or fantasists) for delaying or stopping the aging process. Also in peril of extinction is the entire human species, and Impey ambles through the ways that could happen (the march of natural selection; a close-by supernova explosion) before he proceeds to demolish hope in the endurance of terra firma. Because the sun’s bloat into a red giant star guarantees the earth’s demise, can’t humanity move its home to clement cosmic climes or take up residence on another planet? Theoretically possible, Impey replies, but ultimately futile in an eternally expanding universe in which every particle is fated to decay. Delivering bad news with a bemused touch, Impey entertains as he informs about the facts of life and death. --Gilbert Taylor
