Don't miss TIMELAPSE OF THE FUTURE: A Journey to the End of Time by Melodysheep

Melodysheep or John D. Boswell, who has made amazing films merging clips from science documentaries with self-produced music, has now released a 30-minute film about the future of the universe. The time goes exponentially in the film and various astronomers and physicists who participated in documentaries comment on various elements in films. Incredibly well-made and interesting. The film is better than most documentaries in the field.

2014 I wrote a blog post "Interstellar - How much do you want to pay for humanity's survival?". There I write that some speculate that it is actually possible to survive the death of the universe.

 

Melodysheep writes about his movie like this:

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.

Voices in the film: 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 och Martin Rees
