Scientists have predicted when life on Earth will end.
The sun will grow old and fat — emitting more and more heat.
Bad news: The Earth will become so hot that the oceans will evaporate.
Good News: We’ve got plenty of time to move, according to a study in Astrobiology.
“We estimate that Earth will cease to be habitable somewhere between 1.75 and 3.25 billion years from now,” says Andrew Rushby, lead author of the study and environmental scientist at the University of East Anglia in England.
The scientists examined the “Goldilocks regions” of space, where distance from a sun make conditions on a planet not too hot or too cold for life, according to the Guardian.
Rushby suggests Mars as a possible second home, or a planet with the catchy name of Gliese 581d, a hop and a skip and 20 light year jump away in the constellation of Libra.
