    Rest Harvey,
    In roughly 5 billion years, the sun will run out of energy and drastically alter the solar system. Oceans will be baked dry. Entire planets will be consumed. And long icy worlds will finally enjoy their day in the sun and we will all be energy that ends up scattered out into space. I think that’s impressive and doesn’t sound like the end of anything.
