Dark Future of the Sun

Our Sun has served Earth well for almost five billion years. It has bathed us with heat and energy and sustained life on our planet. But like people, our home star is mortal.

In five billion years, it will stop nurturing its planetary offspring. In this documentary we voyage some five billion years into the future to see how the Sun will eventually end its existence and affect the future of life on our planet. Will humanity one day find a new home amongst the stars and survive the death of the Sun?

    I’m sorry, but I just can’t watch dramatic documentaries done with a husky american voice and sound effects. It ruins it for me, this isn’t Big Brother.
