"The world will be here with or without us, until the sun dies, 5 billion years hence. At that point, the sun's atmosphere will have expanded to engulf the entire orbits of Mercury, Venus and Earth, which will have become charred embers spiraling, one by one, to the crucible that is the sun's core."
 - Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, American Museum of Natural History
