Oh hey guys. So basically the sun has a 10 Billion years lifetime and it's almost halfway through its lifetime. What is gonna happen when the sun dies? Another sun up for the job or we're screwed?

You state that as a fact and while I agree that you are probably right, I still don't think it's something that can be stated as a fact. As Yogi Berra likely would have said, predicting the future is problematic, especially when it's about something that hasn't happened yet.Indeed, Humans will not exist in several milion years let alone a billion due to evolution. Whether we stay on the Earth or manage to live in space, evolution will go down different paths but we will still not be human as such.
There wouldn't be any smartphones by then though.Look at the post above mine, there were no creatures with backbones or shells just 500 million years ago. We developed from very small mammals to what we are today in the 65 million years since the dinosours were extinct. There were no humanoids several million years ago.
Is it that hard to believe we will be entirely different in a million years? Do you not believe in evolution? It never stops :)
On a lighter note, we will probably have dedicated fingers just to control our smartphones by then :)
Well, nobody can really foresee the distant future, but I tend to disagree with this point.The point is we will likely evolve to better interface with whatever technology is around us at that time.
It was only a question of time when this happensOkay - too many tree shrews, aliens, too much anthropomorphism, too much speculation. We go to General discussion.
Unfortunately yes, the human activities have pretty devastating impact on the global ecosystem, and forecasts are not any good. Sadly, it wouldn't be any surprise if our activities already triggered the next mass extinctiont. It also mentions the possibility of a current 6th mass extinction
