7 stunning end of the world predictions
According to scientists, the world could endon March 16, 2880. Asteroid 1950 DA has a 0.3% chance of hittingEarth in 867 years. At 1 km in diameter, rotates once every twohours and six minutes and would cause untold damage were it to hit the earth.The Shrinking Mt Everest, 2015 There was something else going on with thelandscape of Nepal, which nobody would have even thought of us.As the earthquake subsided, what came as a real shocker was that the earth's highestmountain range, Mt. Everest stood 2.8 cm smaller, according to satellite data.Earth's magnetic field flips!
The biggest reason which led the Mayan apocalypsebelievers to predict the end of the world in 2012 was based on the changing patternsof Earth's magnetic fields. However, Earth's magnetic field is stillweakening 10 times faster than normal, at present and can further weaken.Earth's magnetic field flips!

by 2021.A series of apocalyptic events, including floods and earthquakes will spell the endof the world before 2021, according to a doomsday prophecy.NEW UNKNOWN WEAPON In this scenario a new type of weapon is created.It might be a Fusion Bomb capable of turning the world into a shortterm star, it mightbe a new form of radiation or it might even be a gravitational weapon that stops the worldspinning. TOTAL NUCLEAR WARThe devastation from thermonuclear blasts would be bad enough and would send what wasleft of mankind back to the Stone Age.
The radiation would engulf the planet on ascale that can't be imagined. Within 6 months anyone who was not â€œblown upâ€� would bevery sick. Within 24 months just about everyone is dead.
When Will Time End
Time is flying by on this busy, crowded planetas life changes and evolves from second to second. At the same time, the arc of the humanlifespan is getting longer: 67 years is the global average, up from just 20 years in theStone Age. Modern science provides a humbling perspective.Our lives, indeed even that of the human species, are just a blip compared to the Earth, at4.5 billion years and counting, and the universe, at 13.7 billion years. It now appears the entire cosmos is livingon borrowed time. It may be a blip within a much grander sweep of time. When, we nowask, will time endé
Our lives are governed by cycles of wakingand sleeping, the seasons, birth and death. Understanding time in cyclical terms connectsus to the natural world, but it does not answer the questions of science. What explains Earth's past, its geologicaleras and its ancient creaturesé And where did our world come fromé How and when willit endé In the revolutions spawned by Copernicus and Darwin, we began to see time as an arrow,in a universe that's always changing. The 19th century physicist, Ludwig Boltzmann,found a law he believed governed the flight of Time's arrow. Entropy, based on the 2ndlaw of thermodynamics, holds that states of
disorder tend to increase. From neat, orderly starting points, the elements,living things, the earth, the sun, the galaxy. are all headed eventually to states of highentropy or disorder. Nature fights this inevitable disintegration by constantly reassemblingmatter and energy into lower states of entropy in cycles of death and rebirth. Will entropy someday win the battle and putthe breaks on time's arrowé Or will time, stubbornly, keep moving forwardé We are observers, and pawns, in this cosmicconflict. We seek mastery of time's workings,
even as the clock ticks down to our own certainend. Our windows into the nature of time are the mechanisms we use to chart and measurea changing universe, from the mechanical clocks of old, to the decay of radioactive elements,or telescopes that measure the speed of distant objects. Our lives move in sync with the 24hour day,the time it takes the Earth to rotate once. Well, it's actually 23 hours, 56 minutesand 4.1 seconds if you're judging by the stars, not the sun. Earth got its spin atthe time of its birth, from the bombardment of rocks and dust that formed it. But it'sgradually losing it to drag from the moon's
gravity. That's why, in the time of the dinosaurs,a year was 370 days, and why we have to add a leap second to our clocks about every 18months. In a few hundred million years, we'll gain a whole hour. The daynight cycle is so reliable that ithas come to regulate our internal chemistry. The fading rays of the sun, picked up by ourretinas, set our socalled â€œcircadian rhythmsâ€� in motion. That's when our brains beginto secrete melatonin, a hormone that tells our bodies to get ready for sleep.
Finally, in the light of morning, the flowof melatonin stops. Our blood pressure spikesâ€¦ body temperature and heart rate rise as wemove out into the world. Our days, and our lives, are short in cosmic terms. But withour minds, we have learned to follow time's trail out to longer and longer intervals. We know from precise measurements that theEarth goes around the sun every 365.256366 days. Much of the solar energy that hits ourplanet is reflected back to space or absorbed by dust and clouds. The rest sets our planetin motion. You can see it in the ebb and flow of heatin the tropical oceans, the annual melting
End of Time Unix Numberphile
JAMES CLEWETT: The endis nigh, Brady. Time is coming to an end, andI can tell you, actually, precisely when timeis going to end. It's going to end at 3:00 AM,3:14.07 on the 19th of January, 2038. What's going on is we'retalking about the end of Unix time. Now
BRADY HARAN: What's thaté JAMES CLEWETT: You're making aface at me like you don't know what I'm talking about, Brady. Most of us at home are usingeither Windows or Macbased operating systems forour computers. And somewhere buried deep downinside that system is a little counter that's been tickingaway every second that's a fast second
every second sinceJanuary 1, 1970. They began a counter in a 32bitnumber, crucially, that was just going tocount seconds. And obviously, because it'sonly a 32bit number, it's going to run outat some point. That is the point. This is the moment whenthat number runs out of seconds to count.
This is how your computeris telling the time. This is how your computeris keeping the date. So you can take this number, thenumber of seconds, and you can divide it and keep dividingit and keep dividing it to get back to the number ofminutes, hours, days, years that have passed sinceJanuary 1, 1970. So, this is what's coolwith the Unix Epoch. Now the reason I keep talkingabout Unix is because way back
then, there was this operatingsystem called Unix, which was just beginning to really takea hold in corporations and really mission criticalsystems. The point is, in every singleone of those mission critical machines, there's a numberticking away, counting the seconds, and it's tickingtowards January the 19th, 2038, when it's goingto run out. And when it does, a very weirdthing is going to happen.
It's going to roll back to I think it's December 1901. So, in some ways, it's great,because it's an opportunity for us to redo the 20thcentury and maybe get it right this time. But in other ways, it's going tobe absolutely catastrophic, cause it's a lot like theMillennium Bugso some of your viewers were too young toremember the Millennium Bug.
