The End of Everything

The Universe had a beginning, and it will have an end. Modern cosmology — the study of the nature and evolution of the cosmos itself — has allowed physicists to explain the history of the Universe from the first tiny fraction of a second until today. But what’s next? We now have the tools to extend our knowledge into the distant future and speculate about the ultimate fate of all reality.

This popular-level book will take the reader through five universe-ending possibilities proposed by cosmologists, exploring what they would look like (if anyone were still around to see them) and how new cutting-edge astronomical observations and particle experiments can tell us which way our cosmos, and everything in it, might reach its ultimate demise.

“The End of Everything” is scheduled for publication in 2020 by Scribner. (See announcement here in Publisher’s Weekly.) It’s not available for pre-sale yet, but you can sign up >>HERE<< to be notified when it is.
