I am still pondering the time and space of this:
The last stars will die out 120 trillion years from now, followed by 10106 years of just black holes.
Condensed, that’s like the universe starting with 1 second of stars and then a billion billion billion billion billion billion years of just black holes.
Stars are basically the immediate after-effects of the Big Bang. A one-second sizzle of brightness before settling into eternal darkness.
OMgoodness, I am the emotional one in our family and this just makes my heart ache at the beauty of this life.
Feel like my kids are going to make fun of me for this post – ah well.
