End of Times! How Close are we?
Doomsday… is on its way!

Author: Zahid Ikram
 

As far back as recorded history goes, there have been two sets of opposing ideas, beliefs, theories, or teachings about the origin of the universe. It has either existed eternally with no beginning or end, or it was created at some point in time and will eventually come to an end. 

The ultimate fate of the Universe

Many possible fates are predicted by rival scientific theories, including futures of both finite and infinite duration. Once the notion that the universe started with a Big Bang became accepted by a consensus of scientists, the ultimate fate of the universe became a valid cosmological question, one depending upon the physical properties of the mass/energy in the universe, its average density, and the rate of expansion.

خُلِقَ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ مِنۡ عَجَلٍ۬‌ۚ سَأُوْرِيكُمۡ ءَايَـٰتِى فَلَا تَسۡتَعۡجِلُونِ (٣٧) وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَىٰ هَـٰذَا ٱلۡوَعۡدُ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِينَ (٣٨) لَوۡ يَعۡلَمُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ حِينَ لَا يَكُفُّونَ عَن وُجُوهِهِمُ ٱلنَّارَ وَلَا عَن ظُهُورِهِمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يُنصَرُونَ (٣٩) بَلۡ تَأۡتِيهِم بَغۡتَةً۬ فَتَبۡهَتُہُمۡ فَلَا يَسۡتَطِيعُونَ رَدَّهَا وَلَا هُمۡ يُنظَرُونَ (٤٠)

Al-Anbiya 21:37-40
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Man is made of haste. I shall show you My portents, but ask Me not to hasten. (37) And they say: When will this promise (be fulfilled), if ye are truthful? (38) If those who disbelieved but knew the time when they will not be able to drive off the fire from their faces and from their backs, and they will not be helped! (39) Nay, but it will come upon them unawares so that it will stupefy them, and they will be unable to repel it, neither will they be reprieved. (40)

  

انسان (کچھ ایسا جلد باز ہے کہ گویا) جلد بازی ہی سے بنایا گیا ہے۔ میں تم لوگوں کو عنقریب اپنی نشانیاں دکھاؤں گا تو تم جلدی نہ کرو (۳۷) اور کہتے ہیں کہ اگر تم سچے ہو تو (جس عذاب کا) یہ وعید (ہے وہ) کب (آئے گا)؟ (۳۸) اے کاش کافر اس وقت کو جانیں جب وہ اپنے مونہوں پر سے (دوزخ کی) آگ کو روک نہ سکیں گے اور نہ اپنی پیٹھوں پر سے اور نہ ان کا کوئی مددگار ہوگا (۳۹) بلکہ قیامت ان پر ناگہاں آ واقع ہوگی۔ اور ان کے ہوش کھو دے گی۔ پھر نہ تو وہ اس کو ہٹا سکیں گے اور نہ ان کو مہلت دی جائے گی (۴۰)

 

The most popular theory in science about existence of universe today is the Big Bang Theory, the idea that the universe came into existence at a certain point in time roughly 15 to 20 billion years ago. In the last 25 years this theory has moved to the forefront of cosmology.

Al-Anbiya 21: 30, 37-40

Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, then We parted them, and we made every living thing of water? Will they not then believe? (30)

The Quran began with divine revelations upon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in 610. Most of these revelations were either memorized or obscurely written down during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). These revelations were subsequently collected and were standardized in today's version by the caliph Uthman c. 653/654. The text was later given vowel pointing and punctuation in the seventh and eighth centuries.

End of Times... How Close are We?

There are some very speculative ideas and facts about the future of life on earth, destruction of our solar system, Galaxies and whole Universe...
 

 The Collision of the Asteroids
 

In the history of Earth, many asteroids (any of numerous small celestial bodies composed of rock and metal that move around the sun, mainly between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter) have actually collided with our planet earth.  In fact, it is common.  Every day, over 100 small space rocks the size of grapefruits or basketballs are captured by Earth’s gravity. If they are so captured, we call them meteoroids (any of the small solid extraterrestrial bodies that hits the earth's atmosphere)

NASA, ESA and Other Space Agencies from many countries are now watching the skies to make sure that we are not taken by surprise if another large asteroid heads our way.  The project is called the NEO Near Earth Objects Program. 

Most of meteoroids burn up and melt from friction as they enter and pass through Earth’s protective atmosphere.  If they actually enter Earth’s atmosphere, we call them shooting stars or meteors. 

What Quran says about the safe sky…?

Quran: 21: 32-33

 Al-Anbiya 21:32-33
And we have made the sky a roof withheld (from them). Yet they turn away from its portents. (32) 

اور آسمان کو محفوظ چھت بنایا۔ اس پر بھی وہ ہماری نشانیوں سے منہ پھیر رہے ہیں (۳۲)

Al-Mulk 67:16-17
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Have ye taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not cause the earth to swallow you when lo! it is convulsed? (16) Or have ye taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not let loose on you a hurricane? But ye shall know the manner of My warning. (17)

 

 

کیا تم اس سے جو آسمان میں ہے بےخوف ہو کہ تم کو زمین میں دھنسا دے اور وہ اس وقت حرکت کرنے لگے (۱۶) کیا تم اس سے جو آسمان میں ہے نڈر ہو کہ تم پر کنکر بھری ہوا چھوڑ دے۔ سو تم عنقریب جان لو گے کہ میرا ڈرانا کیسا ہے (۱۷)

 

 


Asteroid-Belt
Yet here, in this hostile, lonely, freezing place, a huge population of Solar System objects exists.  They number in the billions and are very old.  They are the Asteroids, space rocks that formed from the same nebula materials that created the Earth and Sun and all of the planets. In Quran it is mentioned many time that men and stones will be fuel in hell…prepared for disbelievers.
 

The space rocks come in all sizes.  They are made mostly of solid rock, with a coating of dust.  Some are dark in color, others much lighter.  Most have craters from other impacts.  Because they are still close enough to the sun’s heat to evaporate water, and because their gravity is usually too low to hold onto much liquid or gas, most asteroids have little frozen ice on their surfaces.  However, some of the bigger asteroids with significant gravity do have ice in quantity. 

 

Asteroids exist in the Asteroid Belt, The region of interplanetary space between Mars and Jupiter where most asteroids are found.

 

In Asteroid Belt billions of space rocks large and small orbit our Sun here.  Some are hundreds of miles in diameter.  Some are the size of large cities or big mountains.  Most, however, are small, ranging from the size of buildings and cars to soccer balls and marbles.

They formed here at the birth of our Solar System 4.6 billion years ago.  Over time, they might have come together by gravity to form another planet except … scientists believe that the presence of Jupiter’s gravity prevented a planet from forming. The Belt is quite thin.

 

Let’s examine one of the Solar System’s larger asteroids:

 

A funny-shaped asteroid named Gaspra is a large beige colored space rock about 9 km (5½ miles) wide. 

 

Al-Qamar 54:1-2
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain. (1) And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion. (2)

سورة القَمَر
شروع الله کے نام سے جو بڑا مہربان نہایت رحم والا ہے

قیامت قریب آ پہنچی اور چاند شق ہوگیا (۱) اور اگر (کافر) کوئی نشانی دیکھتے ہیں تو منہ پھیر لیتے ہیں اور کہتے ہیں کہ یہ ایک ہمیشہ کا جادو ہے (۲)



Gaspra is a common asteroid.  The Asteroid Belt is full of similar rocks, all moving at high speeds through the vast emptiness of space.  However, it is not the biggest asteroid.  Until recently, the biggest “asteroid” was named “Ceres”.  At 900 km (580 miles) in diameter, it is spherical and orbits the sun here in the Asteroid Belt.  Under the new “Dwarf Planet” definition, however, Ceres is now a Dwarf Planet”. 


Another large asteroid is Vesta (560 km
).  Recently, even bigger objects have been discovered far beyond the orbit of Pluto.  They also meet the new definition of dwarf planets. 

Ceres may now be a “Dwarf Planet”, but it is essentially a big rock, pockmarked with thousands of holes called “Craters”,   these craters are caused by other asteroids and space rocks slamming into Ceres at high speed over billions of years and leaving dents in the surface. Ceres is moving fast as its orbits the Sun.  It is traveling over 11 miles/sec (18 km/s). 

 

سُوۡرَةُ القَمَر
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

ٱقۡتَرَبَتِ ٱلسَّاعَةُ وَٱنشَقَّ ٱلۡقَمَرُ (١) وَإِن يَرَوۡاْ ءَايَةً۬ يُعۡرِضُواْ وَيَقُولُواْ سِحۡرٌ۬ مُّسۡتَمِرٌّ۬ (٢)

وَڪَذَّبُواْ وَٱتَّبَعُوٓاْ أَهۡوَآءَهُمۡ‌ۚ وَڪُلُّ أَمۡرٍ۬ مُّسۡتَقِرٌّ۬ (٣) وَلَقَدۡ جَآءَهُم مِّنَ ٱلۡأَنۢبَآءِ مَا فِيهِ مُزۡدَجَرٌ (٤)

[054:001-004] The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.
But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, "This is (but) transient magic."
They reject (the warning) and follow their (own) lusts but every matter has its appointed time.
There have already come to them Recitals wherein there is (enough) to check (them),

قیامت قریب آ پہنچی اور چاند شق ہوگیا (۱) اور اگر (کافر) کوئی نشانی دیکھتے ہیں تو منہ پھیر لیتے ہیں اور کہتے ہیں کہ یہ ایک ہمیشہ کا جادو ہے (۲) اور انہوں نے جھٹلایا اور اپنی خواہشوں کی پیروی کی اور ہر کام کا وقت مقرر ہے (۳) اور ان کو ایسے حالات (سابقین) پہنچ چکے ہیں جن میں عبرت ہے (۴)


Occasionally, big asteroids collide with each other in space.  When that happens, they can break into smaller pieces, or they can be knocked off their former course and head in a new direction.  Both possibilities occur in space. Once in a great while, an asteroid finds itself knocked into a new orbital path headed toward the Sun and planets of the inner Solar System, including Earth.
 

Let’s visit another asteroid.  It is an unusual one called Ida.

 

 

What a strange potato-shaped space rock Ida is.  It is actually very big.  It is 58 km long (about 36 miles) and 24 km (15 miles) wide.  If it ever collided with Earth, it would extinguish all life on the planet. 

Ida is an asteroid that has its own small moon orbiting it.  In fact, over 60 asteroids having small moons have been located by Earth-based telescopes.

وَجَعَلۡنَا ٱلسَّمَآءَ سَقۡفً۬ا مَّحۡفُوظً۬ا‌ۖ وَهُمۡ عَنۡ ءَايَـٰتِہَا مُعۡرِضُونَ (٣٢) وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلَّيۡلَ وَٱلنَّہَارَ وَٱلشَّمۡسَ وَٱلۡقَمَرَ‌ۖ كُلٌّ۬ فِى فَلَكٍ۬ يَسۡبَحُونَ (٣٣)

 

Al-Anbiya 21:32-33
And we have made the sky a roof withheld (from them). Yet they turn away from its portents. (32)

And He it is Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. They float, each in an orbit. (33) 

اور آسمان کو محفوظ چھت بنایا۔ اس پر بھی وہ ہماری نشانیوں سے منہ پھیر رہے ہیں (۳۲)اور وہی تو ہے جس نے رات اور دن اور سورج اور چاند کو بنایا۔ (یہ) سب (یعنی سورج اور چاند اور ستارے) آسمان میں (اس طرح چلتے ہیں گویا) تیر رہے ہیں (۳۳)

 

5-10 bigger asteroid rocks, however, don’t completely melt and are able to reach the ground every day.  If they do hit the ground, we call them meteorites.  When they hit, they can leave holes or craters in the ground.  Most meteorites go unnoticed, but one or two each year crash inside populated areas.  They even hit houses and cars.  No human has ever been killed by one that we know of, but several years ago, a dog was hit and killed by a meteorite, and a woman had one crash through her house roof and land in her lap (it bruised her legs badly, but she survived). 

In 1983, a piece of an asteroid slammed into the trunk of a car parked in a driveway in New Jersey, and in 2003, a meteorite crashed through the roof of a home in Texas and came to rest in the downstairs family room.

Every few million years, a “BIG” asteroid the size of a mountain falls to Earth like a giant cannon ball.  When it hits, the damage can be horrible.  The last such impact occurred about 100 years ago. 

In 1908, an asteroid or comet impacted an isolated area of Siberia (part of Russia).  No one was living there at the time, but the impact destroyed thousands of square miles of forest, and killed thousands of animals and birds. Find more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunguska_event

Ash-Shura 42:5
Almost might the heavens above be rent asunder while the angels hymn the praise of their Lord and ask forgiveness for those on the earth. Lo! Allah, He is the Forgiver, the Merciful. (5) 

قریب ہے کہ آسمان اوپر سے پھٹ پڑیں اور فرشتے اپنے پروردگار کی تعریف کے ساتھ اس کی تسبیج کرتے رہتے ہیں اور جو لوگ زمین میں ہیں ان کے لئے معافی مانگتے رہتے ہیں۔ سن رکھو کہ خدا بخشنے والا مہربان ہے

 

The collision of asteroids may occur in near future. In the history of Earth many asteroids have actually collided with our world.

 

Extinction Level Event (ELE)
 

65 million years ago, an unnamed asteroid about the size of Gaspra (10 km) hit Earth in the Gulf of Mexico off the Yucatan Peninsula.  It left a giant hole (crater) in the ground over 200 km (125 mi) wide and 12 km (8 miles) deep.  At that time, there were no people.  It was the age of the dinosaurs and giant reptiles ruled the land and the seas.  The impact was so terrible that life on Earth changed forever. Find more at http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/070905_killer_asteroid.html

First, a giant tidal wave (a tsunami), was thrown up to a height of 300 meters (1000 ft), and raced in all directions for thousands of miles, drowning everything in its path. That was nothing, however, compared to what happened next… 

 The blast was so powerful that the crust of the Earth cracked and lava poured out underwater.  Enormous amounts of melted rock, dust, steam and gases were thrown high into the air and spread by winds.  These hot fragments fell back to Earth on forested areas and set them on fire. Within weeks, the skies over Earth darkened from ash, dust and smoke, and temperatures plunged as sunlight was blocked out.  The rain became acidic from all the air pollution and the ozone layer that protects our planet from excessive UV radiation from the Sun was badly damaged, allowing harmful UV to reach the ground. 

Within a few months, plant and animal life began to die from the darkness, cold, acid rain, radiation and lack of food.  The dinosaurs never recovered and they all died out.  It was the end of an era. 

In fact, it is estimated that over 70% of all life on Earth (plant and animal) was snuffed out by this collision.  It was a true extinction level event (ELE).  Our official name for it is the Cretaceous-Tertiary Extinction.

NEO has found that at least 2,500 asteroids exist in an orbit that could conceivably bring them into a collision course with Earth.  Unfortunately, only 20% of them have been properly identified to date.  Hopefully, we will find the other 80% before it is too late.

The Near Earth Objects Program has discovered several asteroids that have passed by Earth recently (fortunately without hitting us).  One of them almost smacked into Earth in March 2004, missing us by only 3 Earth diameters (about 25,000 miles). 

In 2029 (hopefully, we’ll all still be alive and well) another asteroid is going to pass even closer to Earth.  In fact, its close encounter may swing it on a new trajectory around the sun that will give it a small chance of hitting Earth when we again meet up with it in 2036.  It is about 280 meters or 1/6 mile wide, and is moving very fast.  Its name is Apophis (also known as 2004 MN4).

Using binoculars on Earth, you should be able to see it pass by for real in 2029.  If we are very unlucky, it will hit Earth in 2036, and everyone will know what that will be like!!!  If it did, it most likely would smack into the ocean, creating a huge tidal wave (tsunami).  Sweeping out from the impact site, it could drown thousands of miles of coastline.

Nay, but it will come upon them unawares so that it will stupefy them, and they will be unable to repel it, neither will they be reprieved. (40)

 بلکہ قیامت ان پر ناگہاں آ واقع ہوگی۔ اور ان کے ہوش کھو دے گی۔ پھر نہ تو وہ اس کو ہٹا سکیں گے اور نہ ان کو مہلت دی جائے گی (۴۰)

 

Humans are not helpless when it comes to asteroids.  It is possible that if one on a collision course with Earth was found soon enough, we could launch spacecraft that could nudge its course enough to cause it to miss an impact with Earth.  However, we have no such technical capability yet.

 

Near-Earth Object Deflection Strategies

Strategies fall into two basic sets: destruction and delay.
 

Destruction concentrates on rendering the impactor harmless by fragmenting it and scattering the fragments so that they miss the Earth or burn up in the atmosphere. As will be shown, this does not always solve the problem, as sufficient amounts of material hitting the Earth at high speed can be devastating even if they are not collected together in a single body.

Delay exploits the fact that both the Earth and the impactor are in orbit. An impact occurs when both reach the same point in space at the same time, or more correctly when some point on Earth's surface intersects the impactor's orbit when the impactor arrives. Since the Earth is approximately 12,750 km in diameter and moves at approx. 30 km per second in its orbit, it travels a distance of one planetary diameter in about 425 seconds, or slightly over seven minutes. Delaying, or advancing the impactor's arrival by times of this magnitude can, depending on the exact geometry of the impact, cause it to miss the Earth. By the same token, the arrival time of the impactor must be known to this accuracy in order to forecast the impact at all, and to determine how to affect its velocity.

 

Nuclear weapons

One of the often proposed solutions is firing nuclear missiles at the oncoming asteroid to vaporize all or most of it. If not completely vaporized, the resulting reduction of mass from the blast combined with the radiation blast and rocket exhaust effect from ejecta could produce positive results. The largest problem with this solution is that if the asteroid breaks into fragments, any fragment larger than 35 m across would not burn up in the atmosphere and itself could impact Earth. Tracking of the thousands of fragments that could result would prove daunting.

Another proposed solution is to detonate a series of smaller nuclear devices alongside the asteroid, far enough away as not to fracture the object. Providing this was done far enough in advance, the relatively small forces from any number of nuclear blasts could be enough to alter the object's trajectory enough to avoid an impact. This is a form of nuclear pulse propulsion. In 1967, students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology designed a system using nuclear explosions to prevent a hypothetical impact on Earth by the asteroid 1566 Icarus. This design study was later published as Project Icarus (MIT Press, 1968), which served as the inspiration  for the 1979 film Meteor.

 

Kinetic Impact

An alternative means of deflecting an asteroid is to attempt to directly alter its momentum by sending a spacecraft to collide with the asteroid.

The European Space Agency is already studying preliminary design of a space mission able to demonstrate this futuristic technology. The mission, named Don Quijote, is the first real asteroid deflection mission ever designed.

In the case of 99942 Apophis it has been demonstrated by ESA's Advanced Concepts Team that deflection could be achieved by sending a simple spacecraft weighing less than one ton to impact against the asteroid. During a trade-off study one of the leading researchers argued that a strategy called 'kinetic impactor deflection' was more efficient than others.

 

Asteroid gravitational tractor

The major alternative to explosive deflection is to move the asteroid slowly over a period of time. Tiny constant thrust accumulates to deviate an object sufficiently from its predicted course. Edward T. Lu and Stanley G. Love have proposed using a large heavy unmanned spacecraft hovering over an asteroid to gravitationally pull the latter into a non-threatening orbit. The spacecraft and the asteroid mutually attract one another. If the spacecraft counters the force towards the asteroid by, e.g., an ion thruster, the net effect is that the asteroid is accelerated towards the spacecraft and thus slightly deflected from its orbit. While slow, this method has the advantage of working irrespective of the asteroid composition or spin rate  rubble pile asteroids would be difficult or impossible to deflect by means of nuclear detonations while a pushing device would be hard or inefficient to mount on a fast rotating asteroid. A gravity tractor would likely have to spend several years beside the asteroid to be effective.

 

Use of focused solar energy

 

NASA study of a solar sail. The sail would be 0.5 km wide.

H. Jay Melosh proposed to deflect an asteroid or comet by focusing solar energy onto its surface to create thrust from the resulting vaporization of material, or to amplify the Yarkovsky effect. Over a span of months or years enough solar radiation can be directed onto the object to deflect it.

 

Mass driver

A mass driver is an (automated) system on the asteroid to eject material into space thus giving the object a slow steady push and decreasing its mass. A mass driver is designed to work as a very low Specific Impulse system, which in general uses a lot of propellant, but very little power.

The idea is that when using local material as propellant, the amount of propellant is not as important as the amount of power, which is likely to be limited.

A mass driver can impart a lot more momentum to an asteroid than a rocket carried there.

 

Conventional Rocket Motor

Attaching any spacecraft propulsion device would have a similar effect of giving a steady push, possibly forcing the asteroid onto a trajectory that takes it away from Earth. An in-space rocket engine that is capable of imparting an impulse of 1E6 m-sec (E.g. adding 1 km/sec to a 1 ton vehicle), will have a relatively small effect on a relatively small asteroid that weighs roughly a million times more.

 

Other proposals

Wrapping the asteroid in a sheet of reflective plastic such as aluminized PET film, or dusting the object with titanium dioxide to alter its trajectory via radiation pressure.

Dusting the object with soot to alter its trajectory via the Yarkovsky effect.

Attaching a large enough solar sail directly to the object, thus using solar pressure to shift the object's orbit
Chapman, Durda & Gold's white paper calculates deflections using existing chemical rockets, delivered to the asteroid, then push it sideways, assuming sufficient fuel also delivered.

The late Eugene Shoemaker in 1996 proposed deflecting a potential impactor by releasing a cloud of steam in the path of the object, hopefully gently slowing it. Nick Szabo in 1990 sketched a similar idea, "cometary aerobraking", the targeting of a comet or ice construct at an asteroid, then vaporizing the ice with nuclear explosives to form a temporary atmosphere in the path of the asteroid.

 

 

 

Deflection technology concerns

Carl Sagan, in his book Pale Blue Dot, expressed concerns about deflection technology: that any method capable of deflecting impactors away from Earth could also be abused to divert non-threatening bodies toward the planet. Considering the history of genocidal political leaders and the possibility of the bureaucratic obscuring of any such project's true goals to most of its scientific participants, he judged the Earth at greater risk from a man-made impact than a natural one. Sagan instead suggested that deflection technology should only be developed in an actual emergency situation.

Analysis of the uncertainty involved in nuclear deflection shows that the ability to protect the planet does not imply the ability to target the planet. A nuclear bomb which changed an asteroid's velocity by 10 meters/second (plus or minus 20%) would be adequate to push it out of an earth-impacting orbit. However, if the uncertainty of the velocity change was more than a few percent, there would be no chance of directing the asteroid to a particular target.

Life Cycle of the SUN

In fact, the Sun and all stars that we can see are exploding internally, with billions of H-bomb type explosions going off every second in its central core.  This results in enormous radiation energy and heat pouring out of the Sun at the speed of light, spreading through space in all directions.  

 

There are some dark orange/brown spots on the Sun. They are sunspots, giant storms of magnetic disturbance where flares and prominences (eruptions) tend to occur often.  They are something like whirlpools on Earth.  They are darker in color than the rest of the Sun because they are actually a bit cooler in temperature than their surroundings. 

 

 

The number of these storms depends upon the Sun’s magnetic field. They come and go in cycles every 11 years.  When sunspots are at their maximum number, there may be over a hundred individual storms raging on the Sun at one time.  Incredibly, even the small spots are larger than Earth.  The big ones could envelop 10 Earths.

Some of the radiation is deadly and can kill us instantly.  Fortunately, Earth’s atmosphere protects us from most of it.  Some radiation is good.  The Sun’s heat is a form of radiation that strikes all of the planets and moons of the Solar System and warms them by different amounts.  Life on Earth is possible because of it.

 

Even though it is exploding, the Sun does not blast out into space like a firecracker going off inside a ball of Jell-O.  The reason is gravity.  Although it is blowing outward, gravity is grabbing those exploding gases and is pulling most of them back in as soon as they try to leave… keeping the Sun at a controlled, sustained size.  This tug-of-war goes on year after year, century after century.  It has been going on for 5 billion years, and will continue for over 5 billion more years.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are extremely energetic explosions that have been observed in distant galaxies. They are the brightest electromagnetic events known to occur in the universe. Bursts can last from ten milliseconds to several hours.

Despite the obvious doom and gloom associated with mass extinctions, they have a tendency to capture our imagination. After all, the sudden demise of the dinosaurs, presumably due to an asteroid strike, is quite an enthralling story. -

Wolf-Rayet stars are regarded as ticking bombs. Since the initial blast would travel at the
speed of light, there would be no warning of its arrival.

Gamma ray bursts can loose as much energy as our sun during its entire 10 billion year lifetime
in anywhere from milliseconds to a minute or more. Unfortunately if this pinwheel ever releases
a gamma ray burst, our planet might be in the firing line.

It remains uncertain just how wide the beams of energy that gamma ray bursts release are.
However, any cone of devastation from the pinwheel would likely be several hundred square
light-years wide by the time it reached Earth, it would be impossible for anyone to get far
enough to be out of the beam coming our way.

 

Gamma ray bursts (GRBs) are the brightest electromagnetic blasts known to occur in the Universe, and can originate from the collapse of the most massive types of stars or from the collision of two neutron stars. Supernovae are stellar explosions that also can send harmful radiation hurtling towards Earth. Both GRBs and supernovae are usually observed in distant galaxies, but can pose a threat if they occur closer to home, where they can strip the Earth’s upper atmosphere of its protective ozone layer leaving life exposed to harmful ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.

خُلِقَ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ مِنۡ عَجَلٍ۬‌ۚ سَأُوْرِيكُمۡ ءَايَـٰتِى فَلَا تَسۡتَعۡجِلُونِ (٣٧) وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَىٰ هَـٰذَا ٱلۡوَعۡدُ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِينَ (٣٨) لَوۡ يَعۡلَمُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ حِينَ لَا يَكُفُّونَ عَن وُجُوهِهِمُ ٱلنَّارَ وَلَا عَن ظُهُورِهِمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يُنصَرُونَ (٣٩) بَلۡ تَأۡتِيهِم بَغۡتَةً۬ فَتَبۡهَتُہُمۡ فَلَا يَسۡتَطِيعُونَ رَدَّهَا وَلَا هُمۡ يُنظَرُونَ (٤٠)

Al-Anbiya 21:37-40
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Man is made of haste. I shall show you My portents, but ask Me not to hasten. (37) And they say: When will this promise(be fulfilled), if ye are truthful? (38) If those who disbelieved but knew the time when they will not be able to drive off the fire from their faces and from their backs, and they will not be helped! (39) Nay, but it will come upon them unawares so that it will stupefy them, and they will be unable to repel it, neither will they be reprieved. (40)

  

انسان (کچھ ایسا جلد باز ہے کہ گویا) جلد بازی ہی سے بنایا گیا ہے۔ میں تم لوگوں کو عنقریب اپنی نشانیاں دکھاؤں گا تو تم جلدی نہ کرو (۳۷) اور کہتے ہیں کہ اگر تم سچے ہو تو (جس عذاب کا) یہ وعید (ہے وہ) کب (آئے گا)؟ (۳۸) اے کاش کافر اس وقت کو جانیں جب وہ اپنے مونہوں پر سے (دوزخ کی) آگ کو روک نہ سکیں گے اور نہ اپنی پیٹھوں پر سے اور نہ ان کا کوئی مددگار ہوگا (۳۹) بلکہ قیامت ان پر ناگہاں آ واقع ہوگی۔ اور ان کے ہوش کھو دے گی۔ پھر نہ تو وہ اس کو ہٹا سکیں گے اور نہ ان کو مہلت دی جائے گی (۴۰)

 

 

Betelgeuse (The second brightest star in Orion) is really big star, one called a Red Super-giant

It is an old star that someday will explode violently.  In fact, the effects of that explosion may actually reach Earth anytime.  

Red Super-giant Star that someday will explode violently or have exploded already

Find more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betelgeuse

Its name is BetelgeuseBetelgeuse is not small.  It’s just very far away.  In fact, this star is a COLOSSAL SUPERGIANT, one of the biggest stars in the sky.  Its radius is over 550 times wider than our Sun and its volume is so great that 18,000,000 (18 MILLION) of our Suns could fit inside it.  Indeed it is very very HUGE!!!

Watch video of Betelgeuse's surface here

 

 

 

Astronomers estimate that within the next few thousand years (maybe tomorrow), Betelgeuse will die in the biggest explosion ever witnessed by life on Earth.  It will “go Hypernova and blow itself to bits. Find more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypernova

The terrible radiation from that explosion, traveling at the speed of light, will take about 640-650 years to reach Earth but when it does, it could slam into our planet with enough energy to give our atmosphere a nasty dose of high-energy radiation. 

What is weird to realize is that Betelgeuse could already have blown up hundreds of years ago, with the light, heat and radiation from that explosion still in route to Earth.  It could arrive tomorrow.  If it does, you would see the star flare into a brilliant ball bright enough to equal the full moon. 

Schaefer said that even if Betelgeuse became a supernova, it would be too far away to do us any actual harm. Find more http://www.earthsky.org/radioshows/48792/betelgeuse-could-become-supernova

By the way, if our sun went supernova, just the blast wave would destroy Earth. The nearest star to our sun, Alpha Centauri, is not likely to become a supernova. But if a star at that distance did go supernova, there would be very heavy damage here on Earth.

It is said that its rotational axis is not toward the Earth and also because of its 640 light year distance, Betelgeuse's supernova will not cause a gamma ray burst in the direction of Earth large enough to damage its ecosystem. what if scientific calculation goes wrong??? or another un seen star has already been blown up long ago and its impact may reach earth in near future???

Watch The Death of a Star: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DG5jwsrLLNM

 

Who knows if the Betelgeuse has already become supernova or hypernova or have become a black hole?

To understand that Betelgeuse could already have blown up hundreds of years ago, but we never know…

 

Let’s take a snapshot of sun;

 

The average distance to the sun is 92,900,000 miles (149,476,000 kilometers). Through the year the distance varies, it is farthest in January and closest in early July, 91,400,000 and 94,400,000 miles, respectively. The differing distance through the year does make a small annual variation in the amount of heat the earth receives.

 

If the distance from the sun is 93,000,000 miles from earth, and the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second (299,972.458KM/S). How long light will takes to reach your camera on earth.

 

It takes 8 min and 20 seconds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you captured its present moment?  NO

 

Light migrates in 499.3 sec = 8 minutes 19.3 sec from Sun to Earth and to reach your camera shutter; it means that your camera has just captured a moment at sun which has been passed about 8 minutes 20 seconds in past.

 

Astronomical distances are sometimes measured in light years (the distance that light would travel in one Earth year, roughly 9.46×1012 kilometers or about 5.88×1012 miles). Because light travels at a large but finite speed, it takes time for light to cover large distances. Thus, the light we observe from distant objects in the universe was emitted from them long ago: in effect, we see their distant past. Even in terms of our own sun, light from the sun takes around eight and one-third minutes to reach the earth.

 

Now, if your telescope has very powerful lenses, which can observe Betelgeuse that is 640-650 Light Years away, you would be observing it 640-650 years in past.

 

You may keep observing that Betelgeuse is all right, and all of a sudden you will get its image of destruction and actual explosion shockwave impact followed by, which may destroy all our solar system.

 

سُوۡرَةُ الاٴعرَاف
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

يَسۡـَٔلُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلسَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرۡسَٮٰهَا‌ۖ قُلۡ إِنَّمَا عِلۡمُهَا عِندَ رَبِّى‌ۖ لَا يُجَلِّيہَا لِوَقۡتِہَآ إِلَّا هُوَ‌ۚ ثَقُلَتۡ فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۚ لَا تَأۡتِيكُمۡ إِلَّا بَغۡتَةً۬‌ۗ يَسۡـَٔلُونَكَ كَأَنَّكَ حَفِىٌّ عَنۡہَا‌ۖ قُلۡ إِنَّمَا عِلۡمُهَا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَڪۡثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ (١٨٧)
 

[007:187] They ask thee about the (final) Hour - when will be its appointed time? Say: "The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (alone): None but He can reveal as to when it will occur. Heavy were its burden through the heavens and the earth. Only, all of a sudden will it come to you." They ask thee as if thou Wert eager in search thereof: Say: "The knowledge thereof is with God (alone), but most men know not."

 

(یہ لوگ) تم سے قیامت کے بارے میں پوچھتے ہیں کہ اس کے واقع ہونے کا وقت کب ہے۔ کہہ دو کہ اس کا علم تو میرے پروردگار ہی کو ہے۔ وہی اسے اس کے وقت پر ظاہر کردےگا۔ وہ آسمان وزمین میں ایک بھاری بات ہوگی اور ناگہاں تم پر آجائے گی۔ یہ تم سے اس طرح دریافت کرتے ہیں کہ گویا تم اس سے بخوبی واقف ہو۔ کہو کہ اس کا علم تو خدا ہی کو ہے لیکن اکثر لوگ یہ نہیں جانتے (۱۸۷)

So, no one can guess or calculate that when this moment will come, and this would be the end of time event for mankind.

 

Sad 38:1-3,15
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Sad. By the renowned Qur'an, (1) Nay, but those who disbelieve are in false pride and schism. (2) How many a generation We destroyed before them, and they cried out when it was no longer the time for escape! (3)

These wait for but one Shout, there will be no second thereto. (15)

 

 

سورة صٓ
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
ص۔ قسم ہے اس قرآن کی جو نصیحت دینے والا ہے (کہ تم حق پر ہو) (۱) مگر جو لوگ کافر ہیں وہ غرور اور مخالفت میں ہیں (۲) ہم نے ان سے پہلے بہت سی اُمتوں کو ہلاک کردیا تو وہ (عذاب کے وقت) لگے فریاد کرنے اور وہ رہائی کا وقت نہیں تھا

 

اور یہ لوگ تو صرف ایک زور کی آواز کا جس میں (شروع ہوئے پیچھے) کچھ وقفہ نہیں ہوگا، انتظار کرتے ہیں (۱۵)

 

 

  

 

Ad-Dukhan 44:10-11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

But watch thou for the day when the sky will produce visible smoke (10) That will envelop the people. This will be a painful torment. (11)

 

سورة الدّخان

An-Najm
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

By the Star when it setteth, (1)  

And unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, (31)  

And that He destroyed the former (tribe of) A'ad, (50) And (the tribe of) Thamud He spared not; (51) And the folk of Noah aforetime, Lo! they were more unjust and more rebellious; (52) And Al-Mu'tafikah He destroyed (53) So that there covered them that which did cover. (54) Concerning which then, of the bounties of thy Lord, canst thou dispute? (55) This is a warner of the warners of old. (56) The threatened Hour is nigh. (57) None beside Allah can disclose it. (58) Marvel ye then at this statement, (59) And laugh and not weep, (60) While ye amuse yourselves? (61) Rather prostrate yourselves before Allah and serve Him. (62)

اور یہ کہ اسی نے عاد اول کو ہلاک کر ڈالا (۵۰) اور ثمود کو بھی۔ غرض کسی کو باقی نہ چھوڑا (۵۱) اور ان سے پہلے قوم نوح کو بھی۔ کچھ شک نہیں کہ وہ لوگ بڑے ہی ظالم اور بڑے ہی سرکش تھے (۵۲) اور اسی نے الٹی ہوئی بستیوں کو دے پٹکا (۵۳) پھر ان پر چھایا جو چھایا (۵۴) تو (اے انسان) تو اپنے پروردگار کی کون سی نعمت پر جھگڑے گا (۵۵) یہ (محمد) بھی اگلے ڈر سنانے والوں میں سے ایک ڈر سنانے والے ہیں (۵۶) آنے والی (یعنی قیامت) قریب آ پہنچی (۵۷) اس (دن کی تکلیفوں) کو خدا کے سوا کوئی دور نہیں کرسکے گا (۵۸) اے منکرین خدا) کیا تم اس کلام سے تعجب کرتے ہو؟ (۵۹) اور ہنستے ہو اور روتے نہیں؟ (۶۰) اور تم غفلت میں پڑ رہے ہو (۶۱) تو خدا کے آگے سجدہ کرو اور (اسی کی) عبادت کرو (۶۲)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

By the heaven and the Morning Star (1) - Ah, what will tell thee what the Morning Star is! (2) - The piercing Star! (3) No human soul but hath a guardian over it. (4) So let man consider from what he is created. (5) He is created from a gushing fluid (6) That issued from between the loins and ribs. (7) Lo! He verily is Able to return him (unto life) (8) On the day when hidden thoughts shall be searched out. (9) Then will he have no might nor any helper. (10) By the heaven which giveth the returning rain, (11) And the earth which splitteth (with the growth of trees and plants) (12) Lo! this (Qur'an) is a conclusive word, (13) It is no pleasantry. (14) Lo! they plot a plot (against thee, O Muhammad) (15) And I plot a plot (against them). (16) So give a respite to the disbelievers. Deal thou gently with them for a while. (17)

 

سورة الطّارق

آسمان اور رات کے وقت آنے والے کی قسم (۱) اور تم کو کیا معلوم کہ رات کے وقت آنے والا کیا ہے (۲) وہ تارا ہے چمکنے والا (۳) کہ کوئی متنفس نہیں جس پر نگہبان مقرر نہیں (۴) تو انسان کو دیکھنا چاہئے کہ وہ کاہے سے پیدا ہوا ہے (۵) وہ اچھلتے ہوئے پانی سے پیدا ہوا ہے (۶) جو پیٹھ اور سینے کے بیچ میں سے نکلتا ہے (۷) بےشک خدا اس کے اعادے (یعنی پھر پیدا کرنے) پر قادر ہے (۸) جس دن دلوں کے بھید جانچے جائیں گے (۹) تو انسان کی کچھ پیش نہ چل سکے گی اور نہ کوئی اس کا مددگار ہو گا (۱۰) آسمان کی قسم جو مینہ برساتا ہے (۱۱) اور زمین کی قسم جو پھٹ جاتی ہے (۱۲) کہ یہ کلام (حق کو باطل سے) جدا کرنے والا ہے (۱۳) اور بیہودہ بات نہیں ہے (۱۴) یہ لوگ تو اپنی تدبیروں میں لگ رہے ہیں (۱۵) اور ہم اپنی تدبیر کر رہے ہیں (۱۶) تو تم کافروں کو مہلت دو بس چند روز ہی مہلت دو (۱۷)

 

 

Here are references from Verses of Quran indicating the doomsday!

Al-Maarij 70:1-44
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

A questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fall (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can repel, (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) (Whereby) the angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day whereof the span is fifty thousand years. (4) But be patient (O Muhammad) with a patience fair to see. (5) Lo! they behold it afar off (6) While we behold it nigh: (7) The day when the sky will become as molten copper, (8) And the hills become as flakes of wool, (9) And no familiar friend will ask a question of his friend (10) Though they will be given sight of them. The guilty man will long to be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children (11) And his spouse and his brother (12) And his kin that harboured him (13) And all that are in the earth, if then it might deliver him. (14) But nay! for lo! it is the fire of hell (15) Eager to roast; (16) It calleth him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And hoarded (wealth) and withheld it. (18) Lo! man was created anxious, (19) Fretful when evil befalleth him (20) And, when good befalleth him, grudging; (21) Save worshippers. (22) Who are constant at their worship (23) And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged (24) For the beggar and the destitute; (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgment, (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom - (27) Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure - (28) And those who preserve their chastity (29) Save with their wives and those whom their right hands possess, for thus they are not blameworthy; (30) But whoso seeketh more than that, those are they who are transgressors; (31) And those who keep their pledges and their covenant, (32) And those who stand by their testimony (33) And those who are attentive at their worship. (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35) What aileth those who disbelieve, that they keep staring toward thee (O Muhammad), open-eyed, (36) On the right and on the left, in groups? (37) Doth every man among them hope to enter the Garden of Delight? (38) Nay, verily. Lo! We created them from what they know. (39) But nay! I swear by the Lord of the rising-places and the setting-places of the planets that We are Able (40) To replace them by (others) better than them. And we are not to be outrun. (41) So let them chat and play until they meet their Day which they are promised, (42) The day when they come forth from the graves in haste, as racing to a goal, (43) With eyes aghast, abasement stupefying them: Such is the Day which they are promised. (44)

ایک طلب کرنے والے نے عذاب طلب کیا جو نازل ہو کر رہے گا (۱) (یعنی) کافروں پر (اور) کوئی اس کو ٹال نہ سکے گا (۲) (اور وہ) خدائے صاحب درجات کی طرف سے (نازل ہوگا) (۳) جس کی طرف روح (الامین) اور فرشتے چڑھتے ہیں (اور) اس روز (نازل ہوگا) جس کا اندازہ پچاس ہزار برس کا ہوگا (۴) (تو تم کافروں کی باتوں کو) قوت کے ساتھ برداشت کرتے رہو (۵) وہ ان لوگوں کی نگاہ میں دور ہے (۶) اور ہماری نظر میں نزدیک (۷) جس دن آسمان ایسا ہو جائے گا جیسے پگھلا ہوا تانبا (۸) اور پہاڑ (ایسے) جیسے (دھنکی ہوئی) رنگین اون (۹) اور کوئی دوست کسی دوست کا پرسان نہ ہوگا (۱۰) (حالانکہ) ایک دوسرے کو سامنے دیکھ رہے ہوں گے (اس روز) گنہگار خواہش کرے گا کہ کسی طرح اس دن کے عذاب کے بدلے میں (سب کچھ) دے دے یعنی اپنے بیٹے (۱۱) اور اپنی بیوی اور اپنے بھائی (۱۲) اور اپنا خاندان جس میں وہ رہتا تھا (۱۳) اور جتنے آدمی زمین میں ہیں (غرض) سب (کچھ دے دے) اور اپنے تئیں عذاب سے چھڑا لے (۱۴) (لیکن) ایسا ہرگز نہیں ہوگا وہ بھڑکتی ہوئی آگ ہے (۱۵) کھال ادھیڑ ڈالنے والی (۱۶) ان لوگوں کو اپنی طرف بلائے گی جنہوں نے (دین حق سے) اعراض کیا (۱۷) اور (مال )جمع کیا اور بند کر رکھا (۱۸) کچھ شک نہیں کہ انسان کم حوصلہ پیدا ہوا ہے (۱۹) جب اسے تکلیف پہنچتی ہے تو گھبرا اٹھتا ہے (۲۰) اور جب آسائش حاصل ہوتی ہے تو بخیل بن جاتا ہے (۲۱) مگر نماز گزار (۲۲) جو نماز کا التزام رکھتے (اور بلاناغہ پڑھتے) ہیں (۲۳) اور جن کے مال میں حصہ مقرر ہے (۲۴) (یعنی) مانگنے والے کا۔ اور نہ مانگے والے والا کا (۲۵) اور جو روز جزا کو سچ سمجھتے ہیں (۲۶) اور جو اپنے پروردگار کے عذاب سے خوف رکھتے ہیں (۲۷) بےشک ان کے پروردگار کا عذاب ہے ہی ایسا کہ اس سے بےخوف نہ ہوا جائے (۲۸) اور جو اپنی شرمگاہوں کی حفاظت کرتے ہیں (۲۹) مگر اپنی بیویوں یا لونڈیوں سے کہ (ان کے پاس جانے پر) انہیں کچھ ملامت نہیں (۳۰) اور جو لوگ ان کے سوا اور کے خواستگار ہوں وہ حد سے نکل جانے والے ہیں (۳۱) اور جو اپنی امانتوں اور اقراروں کا پاس کرتے ہیں (۳۲) اور جو اپنی شہادتوں پر قائم رہتے ہیں (۳۳) اور جو اپنی نماز کی خبر رکھتے ہیں (۳۴) یہی لوگ باغہائے بہشت میں عزت واکرام سے ہوں گے (۳۵) تو ان کافروں کو کیا ہوا ہے کہ تمہاری طرف دوڑے چلے آتے ہیں (۳۶) اور) دائیں بائیں سے گروہ گروہ ہو کر (جمع ہوتے جاتے ہیں) (۳۷) کیا ان میں سے ہر شخص یہ توقع رکھتا ہے کہ نعمت کے باغ میں داخل کیا جائے گا (۳۸) ہرگز نہیں۔ ہم نے ان کو اس چیز سے پیدا کیا ہے جسے وہ جانتے ہیں (۳۹) ہمیں مشرقوں اور مغربوں کے مالک کی قسم کہ ہم طاقت رکھتے ہیں (۴۰) (یعنی) اس بات پر (قادر ہیں) کہ ان سے بہتر لوگ بدل لائیں اور ہم عاجز نہیں ہیں (۴۱) تو (اے پیغمبر) ان کو باطل میں پڑے رہنے اور کھیل لینے دو یہاں تک کہ جس دن کا ان سے وعدہ کیا جاتا ہے وہ ان کے سامنے آ موجود ہو (۴۲) اس دن یہ قبر سے نکل کر (اس طرح) دوڑیں گے جیسے (شکاری) شکار کے جال کی طرف دوڑتے ہیں (۴۳) ان کی آنکھیں جھک رہی ہوں گی اور ذلت ان پر چھا رہی ہوگی۔ یہی وہ دن ہے جس کا ان سے وعدہ کیا جاتا تھا (۴۴)

Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous. (255)

And they say: When (will) this promise (be fulfilled), if ye are truthful? (25) Say: The knowledge is with Allah only, and I am but a plain warner; (26) But when they see it nigh, the faces of those who disbelieve will be awry, and it will be said (unto them): This is that for which ye used to call. (27) Say (O Muhammad): Have ye thought: Whether Allah causeth me (Muhammad) and those with me to perish or hath mercy on us, still, who will protect the disbelievers from a painful doom? (28)

Yet, there are some more very speculative ideas about the fate of the universe….

 

 

Heat Death

Cosmologists estimate that the acceleration began roughly 5 billion years ago. Before that, it is thought that the expansion was decelerating, due to the attractive influence of dark matter and baryons. The density of dark matter in an expanding universe decreases more quickly than dark energy, and eventually the dark energy dominate. Specifically, when the volume of the universe doubles, the density of dark matter is halved but the density of dark energy is nearly unchanged (it is exactly constant in the case of a cosmological constant).

If the acceleration continues indefinitely, the ultimate result will be that galaxies outside the local super cluster will move beyond the cosmological horizon (marks a limit to observability, and marks the boundary of a region that an observer cannot see into directly due to cosmological effects.): they will no longer be visible, because their line-of-sight velocity becomes greater than the speed of light. This is not a violation of special relativity, and the effect cannot be used to send a signal between them. (Actually there is no way to even define "relative speed" in a curved space-time. Relative speed and velocity can only be meaningfully defined in flat space-time or in sufficiently small (infinitesimal) regions of curved space-time). Rather, it prevents any communication between them and the objects pass out of contact. The Earth, the Milky Way and the Virgo Super Cluster, however, would remain virtually undisturbed while the rest of the universe recedes. In this scenario, the local super cluster would ultimately suffer heat death, just as was thought for the flat, matter-dominated universe, before measurements of cosmic acceleration.

(39) Nay, but it will come upon them unawares so that it will stupefy them, and they will be unable to repel it, neither will they be reprieved. (40)

Big Rip

 

Until the dawn of the 20th century, the only view prevailing in the world of science was that "the universe has a constant nature and it has existed since infinite time." However, modern research, observations, and calculations carried out by means of modern technology have revealed that the universe in fact had a beginning and that it constantly "expands."

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Russian physicist Alexander Friedmann and the Belgian cosmologist Georges Lemaitre theoretically calculated that the universe is in constant motion and that it is expanding.

This notion was confirmed by the use of observational data in 1929. While observing the sky with a telescope, Edwin Hubble, the American astronomer, discovered that the stars and galaxies were constantly moving away from each other. This discovery is regarded as one of the greatest in the history of astronomy. During these observations, Hubble established that the stars emit a light that turns redder according to their distance. That is because according to the known laws of physics, light heading towards a point of observation turns violet, and light moving away from that point assumes a more reddish hue. During his observations, Hubble noted a tendency towards the color red in the light emitted by stars. In short, the stars were moving further and further away, all the time. The stars and galaxies were not only moving away from us, but also from each other. A universe where everything constantly moves away from everything else implied a constantly expanding universe. The observations carried out in the following years verified that the universe is constantly expanding.

In order to gain a clearer understanding of this, let us imagine the universe to be the surface of a balloon being inflated. In the same way that the more the balloon is inflated, the further away the points on its surface move from one another, celestial bodies also move away from one another as the universe expands. This was theoretically discovered by Albert Einstein, regarded as one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. However, in order to avoid violating the "static universe model" that was generally accepted at that time, Einstein laid that discovery aside. He would later describe this as the greatest blunder of his life.

From the moment of the Big Bang, the universe has been constantly expanding at a great speed. Scientists compare the expanding universe to the surface of a balloon that is inflated.

The Universe is expanding, it has been mentioned in Quran:

 

Adh-Dhariyat 51:47
And it is We Who have constructed the heaven with might, and verily, it is We Who are steadily expanding it.

 

One suggests that phantom energy causes divergent expansion, which would imply that the effective force of dark energy continues growing until it dominates all other forces in the universe. Under this scenario, dark energy would ultimately tear apart all gravitationally bound structures, including galaxies and solar systems, and eventually overcome the electrical and nuclear forces to tear apart atoms themselves, ending the universe in a "Big Rip".

Big Crunch

 

On the other hand, dark energy might dissipate with time, or even become attractive. Such uncertainties leave open the possibility that gravity might yet rule the day and lead to a universe that contracts in on itself in a "Big Crunch".

 

سُوۡرَةُ الرَّحمٰن

Some scenarios, such as the Cyclic Model (A cyclic model is any of several cosmological models in which the universe follows infinite, self-sustaining cycles, for example: an eternity of Big Bang-Big crunches) suggest this could be the case. While these ideas are not supported by observations, they are not ruled out.

 

Measurements of acceleration are crucial to determining the ultimate fate of the universe in big bang theory.

 

As Big Bang theory, the creation of the universe began with a huge explosion. From this point, the universe has been expanding ever since. Scientists say that when the mass of the universe has reached a sufficient level, this expansion will come to an end because of gravity, causing the universe to collapse in on itself.

Philip Ball, "Black Crunch Jams Universal Cycle," Nature, 23 December 2002; Dr. David Whitehouse, "Universe is 'doomed to collapse'," BBC News Online, 22 October 2002

 

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/2346907.stm ; and Mark Schwartz, "Cosmic 'big crunch' could trigger an early demise of our universe," Stanford Report, 25 September 2002.

 

It is also believed that the contracting universe will end in a fierce heat and contraction known as the "Big Crunch." This would lead to the end of all forms of life as we know them. Renata Kallosh and Andrei Linde, professors of physics from Stanford University, made the following statements on the subject:

 

The Big Crunch theory proposes that the universe, that began expanding with the Big Bang, will collapse in on itself with increasing speed. According to the theory, this collapse of the universe will continue until the universe has lost all its mass and turned into a single point of infinite density.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The universe may be doomed to collapse and disappear. Everything we see now, and at a much larger distance that we cannot see, will collapse into a point smaller than a proton. Locally, it will be the same as if you were inside a black hole... We have found that some of the best attempts to describe dark energy predict that it will gradually become negative, which will cause the universe to become unstable, then collapse... Physicists have known that dark energy could become negative and the universe could collapse sometime in the very distant future... but now we see that we might be, not in the beginning, but in the middle of the life cycle of our universe. Schwartz, "Cosmic 'big crunch' could trigger an early demise of our universe,"

 

This is how this scientific hypothesis of the Big Crunch is indicated in the Quran:

 

سُوۡرَةُ الاٴنبیَاء
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

يَوۡمَ نَطۡوِى ٱلسَّمَآءَ ڪَطَىِّ ٱلسِّجِلِّ لِلۡڪُتُبِ‌ۚ كَمَا بَدَأۡنَآ أَوَّلَ خَلۡقٍ۬ نُّعِيدُهُ ۥ‌ۚ وَعۡدًا عَلَيۡنَآ‌ۚ إِنَّا كُنَّا فَـٰعِلِينَ (١٠٤)

 

That Day We will fold up heaven like folding up the pages of a book. As We originated the first creation so We will regenerate it. It is a promise binding on Us. That is what We will do. (Quran, 21:104)

 

جس دن ہم آسمان کو اس طرح لپیٹ لیں گے جیسے خطوں کا طومار لپیٹ لیتے ہیں۔ جس طرح ہم نے (کائنات کو) پہلے پیدا کیا اسی طرح دوبارہ پیدا کردیں گے۔ (یہ) وعدہ (جس کا پورا کرنا لازم) ہے۔ ہم (ایسا) ضرور کرنے والے ہیں (۱۰۴)

 

In another verse, this state of the heavens is described thus:

 

سُوۡرَةُ الزُّمَر
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

وَمَا قَدَرُواْ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدۡرِهِۦ وَٱلۡأَرۡضُ جَمِيعً۬ا قَبۡضَتُهُ ۥ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ وَٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتُ مَطۡوِيَّـٰتُۢ بِيَمِينِهِۦ‌ۚ سُبۡحَـٰنَهُ ۥ وَتَعَـٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُونَ (٦٧)

 

They do not measure Allah with His true measure. The whole earth will be a mere handful for Him on the Day of Rising the heavens folded up in His right hand. Glory be to Him! He is exalted above the partners they ascribe! (Qur'an, 39:67)

اور انہوں نے خدا کی قدر شناسی جیسی کرنی چاہیئے تھی نہیں کی۔ اور قیامت کے دن تمام زمین اس کی مٹھی میں ہوگی اور آسمان اس کے داہنے ہاتھ میں لپٹے ہوں گے۔ (اور) وہ ان لوگوں کے شرک سے پاک اور عالی شان ہے (۶۷)

 

According to the Big Crunch theory, the universe will begin to collapse slowly and will then increasingly pick up speed. At the end of the process the universe will have infinite density and be infinitely hot and small. This scientific theory runs parallel to the Quranic explanation of this particular scientific concept. (Allah knows best)

تو آنکھیں نیچی کئے ہوئے قبروں سے نکل پڑیں گے گویا بکھری ہوئی ٹڈیاں (۷)

This verse describes all people's situation in the Hereafter as one resembling swarming locusts. There is great wisdom in this simile.

A great deal of information was obtained about locusts in the twentieth century by conducting wide-ranging studies using micro-cameras. Locust swarms contain huge numbers of individual locusts that behave as a single body. Coming together in swarms that are kilometers long and wide, they look just like a dark cloud. It has been established, for instance, that a single swarm of desert locusts can cover 1,200 square kilometers (460 square miles) and contain between 40 and 80 million locusts per square kilometers.

In addition, they deposit their eggs in sandy soils like seeds and, after the larvae have remained underground for a long period of time, they all emerge together. After digging a 10-15 cm-long tunnel in the ground, a female locust lays 95-158 eggs at once. Females can lay eggs at least three times in their lifetime. When the larvae have matured after 10-65 days, depending on the air temperature, they emerge in a large group. Up to 1,000 egg pods have been found in one square meter. Locust swarms are large enough to cover several hundred square kilometers, with the number of adult locusts per square kilometer varying from between 40 to 80 million. Their long underground existence and sudden emergence in vast numbers all at the same time may resemble the resurrection of human beings on the Day of Judgment. (Allah knows best.)

Today, locusts are being studied by special units, which employ remote control imaging systems. Even NASA satellite data are used to identify areas in Africa where desert locust colonies have developed. Thanks to satellite data, it is possible to carry out wide-ranging research on land and in space over an 18 million square kilometer area.

As we have seen, the fact that the Quran made such a comparison at a time when these technologies did not exist is one of the proofs that it is the revelation of the Omniscient Allah.
