The Last Three Minutes
Conjectures About the Ultimate Fate of the UniverseBook - 1994
Davies (natural philosophy, U. of Adelaide, Australia) presents a variety of scenarios for the ultimate fate of the universe. He describes theories such as the earth's predicted collision in 2126 with the Swift-Tuttle comet, Helmholtz's theory of the universe's slow disintegration by entropy, and speculations that the violent collapse of our universe may give birth through an umbilical wormhole to a new universe. Davies examines the scientific as well as the human implications of the alternative endings to our universal drama. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
