All things must pass and everything must come to an end, even the universe itself – or, so many people think. Katie Mack has considered this idea, the end of the universe, and asked: given the way the universe began, and given the different fundamental theories, what are the different ways that the universe may end?
Over at the Panpsycast we have recently interviewed Katie about her new book The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking). The interview was incredibly interesting and illuminating, albeit a little existentially bracing!
In our interview we talked with Katie about Big Crunch theories, the Heat Death of the universe, and the potential for our universe ending by Vacuum Decay – the coolest and scariest of ways to end the universe, which you can read about here.
In addition to our interview, you can watch Katie talk about the ultimate destruction of absolutely everything here:
