Not to be a downer, but the universe could end any minute. Or it could take a hundred million years. Give or take. So we don't know *when* it will happen, but we can be a bit more certain about *how* the universe will end. In this episode, Tai unpacks the science of the end times.
In this episode Tai talks to:
- Katie Mack, theoretical astrophysicist and the author of The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking),
- Christopher Kochanek, professor of astronomy at the Ohio State University. His current research focuses on "massive stars behaving badly."
