End of the Earth
In â€˜The End of the Earthâ€™, our experts discuss how the earth has become
an extremely dangerous place to live within the wider universe.
According to many cosmologists, it is only a matter of time before a
cosmic force will annihilate the planet. At this very moment, NASAâ€™s
top brass and other scientists are arming themselves with the latest
technology to pre-empt an apocalyptic attack. We investigate a number
of bizarre, unexplained and terrifying â€˜end of earthâ€™ scenarios. We
meet scientists from around the world who are racing against the clock
to develop technology to detect and defend our planet from apocalyptic
demons. The prime suspects: asteroids, comets, gamma ray bursts, the
sun and the Big Rip - a mysterious phenomenon called â€˜dark energyâ€™
which could eventually rip apart everything in the universe.
