It all ends in a cold sea of photons – or, what I learned from Brian Cox’s Wonders of the Universe.

Hubble

Brian Cox’s programme was full of pretty pics of the universe but didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know, which amounts to this:

a) the universe is not just immensely big and wide but also full of numbers with unwriteable amounts of zeros

b) time goes irrevocably in one direction (none of that incomprehensible multiple alternative time-bending universe string-theory nonsense), and

c) it’ll all end in a big soup of cold photos in which nothing ever happens, ever again, effectively putting an end to time itself.
