TIMELAPSE OF THE FUTURE: A Journey to the End of Time (4K)

Birt 20 mar 2019
Support my work on Patreon: www.patreon.com/melodysheep | Get the soundtrack: bit.ly/2HKl9fi | How's it all gonna end? This experience takes us on a journey to the end of time, trillions of years into the future, to discover what the fate of our planet and our universe may ultimately be.

We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos - to name a few.

This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science - a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent - and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found.

To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective - that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away. Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.

Featuring the voices of David Attenborough, Craig Childs, Brian Cox, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michelle Thaller, Lawrence Krauss, Michio Kaku, Mike Rowe, Phil Plait, Janna Levin, Stephen Hawking, Sean Carroll, Alex Filippenko, and Martin Rees.

  • hey guys - thanks for all the love on this piece. just posted my follow up film, LIFE BEYOND: isprofile.info/pac/jIyanZOFl161oXc/v-deo.html hope ya dig!

  • Jesus coming soon


  • Best video on youtube ever

  • Respect to Camera Man📈📈📈📈

  • Wow that will happened bro that's true


  • Life.

  • 2020 must be Covid-19 era.

  • So basically what your telling me is we don't stand a chance figuring anything out. Not even if we had eternity to try.

  • Yow this is better than a movie. I thought this was a real movie. My mind just stop and think in the first part of the vid. This should be in Hollywood. 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

  • This is....damning and breathtaking at the same time.

  • The main protagonist lived through ALL of this 😪

    • Nah nah, it's just queen Elizabeth

  • So hard that you and me are nothing in this universe the universe itself is nothing just much many stars are in turning in hungover with no plan clashing, exploid, residuals, clashing, exploid, residuals until infenity

  • the fact that in just a day a snap of a finger all are memories will simply disappear

  • This shows that life is meaningless. I mean no matter what we do, nothing will be remembered

  • My sister said this video is awful but I thought it was beautiful 👍

  • why did this almost- is this a sad feeling or good feeling but then I feel calm what is this feeling?!

  • This has been my favorite video ever since it came out

  • Kalau Ada Pengawalan Berarti Ada Pengakhirian

  • Heaven is our home but it will really be a bummer for the immortal damned such as vampires.

    • Yea, what a bummer, queen Elizabeth must be bored

  • Funny how earth dies within 3 minutes of a 30 minute show

  • I love watching this type of stuff before going to bed

  • Funny how the title makes sense in 2020

  • I’ve had a theory and I don’t know if this is already one but What if we are just part of another planet like earth, think about it, a dark planet with us a land. It most likely isn’t true but what if it’s true

    • You're basically thinking of a multiverse, where each universe is its own planet and the planets, galaxies and clusters/superclusters are land

  • Can I just say, as a Christian, this video actually bolsters my faith and reverence for God? Like, it blows my mind that, trillions upon trillions upon even more trillions of years from now, when the universe is dying and time becomes meaningless, God will be exactly the same as He is today, which is exactly the same as He was at the Big Bang. And to think that He orchestrated it all, from beginning to end, with a window of habitability in the universe's lifetime so that humanity can exist. for me it puts into perspective how big my God is, and how small and insignificant I am, but He still loves me and sent His Son to die for me it just-- You don't have to agree with me, this is just me rambling on about my personal thoughts on this, being a Christian. no hate please ^_^

  • Special thanks to the camera man

  • You mean futurama lied to me?

  • The ending makes you question everything, like I'm literally speechless about it

  • good thing i am dead and nas day-

    • **Nas daily will remember that**

  • Thanks for making the depressed even more depressed -_-

  • Even! I forgot corona for 29 minutes.

  • What an amazing, well made video. Very good

  • This proves there is no heaven

    • Maybe, just maybe

  • E.P.I.C

  • 22:26 "The universe will become cold and dark and empty" *cheerful music playing in the background*

  • The kind baritone methodically fancy because pet bacteriologically rhyme amongst a dizzy jaw. plucky, profuse children

  • Imagine, being immortal is probably the worst curse out there, if it was ever to happen.

  • Me after the first trillion years mark: damn glad I won't be there for that, stay safe tho

  • This is my fav video

  • I think is heard Brian Cox in that in the part where the sun dies

  • One of the most epic videos on the internet.

  • 9:21

  • Ab kia kari jo Hami pasand ajata ha usi m kisi be qemat par hasil karta ho

  • this is somehow comforting but also terrifying at the same time

  • Props to the cameraman to travel in time and surviving all of that just to film this

  • Bye, last proton.

  • this is the sort of stuff that sent Nitschke mad.

  • How CUTE and irrelevant this fucking GARBAGE has become to today's standard of living...2021 and look all the fucking crap disgusting world governments aligned with some very ultra wealthy PSYCHOTIC aristocrats that are plunging our economy down to rubble...and were supposed to just sit here and believe this HORSESHIT!? NO...what will happen is a plunge into a recession the likes 2008 and 1929 have not seen a lower bar for humanity's struggle to survive...before 2025 were about to see a true horrific scenario that by 2030 it will be like NOTHING the likes these FICTITIOUS films, documentaries, WHATEVER has shown us...humanity will not be able to truly advance to the next stage of prosperous evolution that can INCLUDE massive expansion onto the heavens and beyond or Solar System if we keep ignoring the true systemic problem that are these disgusting oligarchs, if we would of dealt with them LONG LONG ago and then prevent the Federal Reserve from ever jacking the U.S. economy, things would of been completely different TODAY...2021 would of felt like 2100 instead the possibilities would be ENDLESS...FREE energy and a better solid monetary system, not this disgusting CLICK BAIT fear PORN crap that is flying everywhere...YEAH real fucking PROGRESS THERE.

  • This is sad

  • Fakeeeeeee

    • It's just theoretical

    • It's just a prediction damnit, it's obvious not gonna be 100% accurate

  • One of the most beautiful video on the Internet.

  • Ashaduallahilaha illallah wash'haduana'muhammadanabduhu warasulu

  • Nothing happens, and it keeps not happening...forever.. 2nd big bang: "hold my beer"

  • Makes me scared of humans being non existent until I look how long the time was

  • And now imagine. We have sent hundreds of messages into space by air, by satellite ... But we still have no response. As far as we know, we are alone. Now imagine that in this universe, no planet other than earth has succeeded in creating life as intelligently as we (that is a possibility). We would be alone. In this immense universe in perpetual expansion. Alone among these billions of planets and stars. I find that depressing and terribly ... unfair? Why should we be the only ones who have to fantasize our whole life about different life forms, why should we be the only ones hoping to meet something other than ourselves? It is terribly cruel and yet it is a possibility. When I look at the stars at night, I tell myself that maybe some of them are already dead but they were so far away that their light still reaches us. As we speak, undoubtedly billions of suns are dying and being created, civilizations may be dying out and others are emerging. We have succeeded in going beyond the limits imposed by instinct and now we have to go beyond the limits of time and space. This is the challenge that we place on other life forms, if they haven't already. It's a challenge that I throw at the universe whenever I feel alone. I think, "Surprise me" and I desperately wait for an answer. Alone.

    • Although our satellites can produce radio waves up to 200+ light years, it's still not enough to search the galaxy with it, I say we make long term probes that can boost the length of our radio waves up to 500 or 1000 light years to just contact our own galaxies, and light years are quite large

  • props to the camerman recording this for us

    • @Salahuddin Hamsani your Grammer is not exist dude

    • @Salahuddin Hamsani your brain is not exist dude

    • the camera man is not exist dude

  • I feel useless after watching this video 😞

  • How can we predict beyond if one can't still fully understand the origin?

  • It's unbelievable how in five minutes, half of the universe and stars can disappear, and before you know it, there is almost a whole new one.

  • Did God made a mistake about the future?

  • The earsplitting teaching mechanistically cheer because oatmeal coincidentally ski aside a late algeria. fretful, well-off vessel

    • Pardon my ignorance but, what the hell is this sentence?


  • God is the only explanation of all these things

    • I don't think so lad

    • @Kai Schablewski why no? Just no is not satisfying oo 😐 sorry this is not your headache

    • No

  • This is theoretical. No one can say for sure, if it's gonna go like that. We know very little about space and how it works, but sure... have your existential crisis x) But it's a cool video. Thank you and good job to whoever made it.

  • 3.8 billion years and we are all dead. 💀💀

    • Eh, by that amount of time we might as hell have explored to milky way

  • The trashy tomato disconcertingly rot because blood oddly coach during a deeply christopher. short, useless texture

  • Watch "Wonders of the Universe" Episode 1 about time and entropy if you liked this. A lot of the dialogue in this is from that episode.


    • What the hell is "universe life" there is a begining, and an end, it's a simple yet scary concept in long term

  • Hello everyone ! This is your daily dose of existential crisis

  • why did this seem like a dramatic movie

  • tranqui pa, yo les mando una foto para ver si tenían razón, déjame tu cbu

  • Maybe... just maybe... a big bang at the last

  • 00:00

  • 30:00

  • With this video, I was able to see in my future

  • Is this predictable?

  • don't worry i'll plug it back before it happens..(infinity)

  • the first 10 minutes are terrifing

  • This is like a horror movie

  • Cosmologists and astronomers tell us that the universe is expanding and galaxies are flying apart. But at the same time they say that the Andromeda galaxy is destined to collide with the Milky Way. 🤣 They're full of 💩.

    • Is this sarcasm? Our group of galaxies "the local group (pretty lazy tbh) consists of 30 galaxies, most being dwarves, and Andromeda and milky way are the center of its gravitational pull, sooner or later the center of gravity would be so strong it would collide the 2 galaxies to the unorigal name "milkdromeda"

  • This is absolutely gorgeous.... yet everything passed the first 5 minutes ... the rest is completely THEORETICAL.

    • The "ending of the universe" part isn't really theoretical, it will soon happen

  • *the video* I’m bored let’s make the universe end in 30 minutes The end ahhh time is meaningless and now I have peace and quiet *the camera man* how am my not dead and what the heck happened *god* i chose you *the camera* oh ok thank you

  • :0 My brain hurts... There is not time ever...

  • And with that conclusion, everyone, please enjoy your life... while you can, because who knows, if you will ever get to, again.

  • Don't scared about future but see the present and enjoy your life 😊and If you are scared than learn and educate yourself for future 👊😤

    • Out of all the languages you could've spoken, you spoke facts

  • Imagine if they put this in the big screen and see how People will react

  • Don't worry everyone...Starbucks will open a location on one of those dead suns

    • bruh so true XDDDD legit i was scared and i read this and i have no fear XD

  • llevo 6 trillones

  • false, ill just outlive it all, stay tuned

    • I call cap my mans, queen Elizabeth is gonna outlive the death of the universe

  • 🤯🤯🤯🤯

  • Take a break enjoy your life Don't stress cuz as you see in this video... None of this Shit will matter

  • K cool

  • You know something that pisses me off is every kid knows about one day the sun will become a Red Giant but, not one of these people that post the destruction of the solar system say anything about mankind ability to easily be able to planet hop out of the solar system and constantly stay in a habitable area with a magnetic field generator or actually be able to move out planets like a pool table using objects in space to see the human race advance in the last 200 hundred years and know we have millions perhaps billions of years to prepare can’t they have these films with a realistic ending or are they that dumb???

    • By the time the sun explodes humans in other systems looking at the sun like: the fuck they doing over there

  • TON-618 is the last black hole evaporates

  • That's why earth is the best The earth is the one have the that gives to the othe planet And aliens can kill earth too they will drop a big bomb Just prey on jesus so it won't happen

    • No thanks, I don't wanna prey on God

  • It's like we gonna have a sun but in ice

  • This is a bit to violent for me.

  • Its just a warning to people doesnt do a good things in the world
