Imagining the future of humankind, our planet, and everything dear to us in our corner of this dark and cold universe is usually the field of science fiction, and we usually worry about a few hundred years at best, but what about thousands and thousands of years? What will happen then? Thanks to the various scientific tools, it has become clear that some things in the distant future can be predicted with surprising accuracy.
What Will Happen 10,000 Years From Now:
Based on what we know about life, the universe, and everything, some scientific forecasts in areas such as astrophysics and evolution can reach hundreds of thousands of years in the future, and several timelines can be found fixed on Wikipedia, among which one is based a lot on science fiction and popular imagination, but let’s see What the science says will happen in the nearest distant future, about 10,000 years from now.
To begin with, it will then be that the eastern Antarctic, the largest continuous ice sheet, has completely disappeared, and models predict that if the Wilkes sub-basin collapses, then this huge ice mass will take 5,000 to 10,000 years to dissipate in The sea, raising its water level from three meters to four, and it is likely that there will be no human presence at all during this period to deal with the rise of sea water, according to an estimate made by the Australian theoretical physicist (Brandon Carter), which he called (Burhan Judgment Day) There is a 95% chance that the human race has died Me completely during 10,000 years, and this topic has received a lot of controversies, so we are not sure whether humans will survive for that time or not, but if they can survive there will be no regional genetic differences between them, and this does not mean that all people will be the same, but none The genetic differences between them (such as blue eyes versus brown ones) will spread evenly around the planet.
It is also expected that during the next 10,000 years the giant red star (Antares) will explode, transforming into a supernova super bright that will be visible during the day (in fact, the star Antares is expected to explode at any moment, so we hope that this will happen). Soon so we can see it in our sky instead of imagining it will happen at a time when our offspring are extinct.)
If we extend that time window to 13,000 years, the tilt of the Earth’s axis would be reversed, separating the seasons between the two hemispheres, which would be confusing to us if we lived.
But regardless of whether humans will survive until that time, Pioneer 10, 11, Voyager 1, and 2, and New Horizons space probes will continue to sail across the stars, not for thousands, but millions of years.
If we looked farther into the future, 296,000 years from now the Voyager 2 would surpass the brightest star in our sky (Sirius).
All of these expectations deal with the closest possible point of what we know in the distant future, yet we are already feeling dizzy.
