Okay, I’m probably a little slappy from all this cold medicine (yes, again), but this quote strikes me as geek-fabulous: Describing the possible death-by-rending of the universe (stars, planets, right down to the subatomic particles), cosmologist Robert Caldwell recites the cataclysmic events at the very end of time: The planets pull away from the sun, Earth explodes, and finally the very atoms and their nuclei are torn asunder. At that point in the life of the universe, says Caldwell, “There’s about 30 minutes left, but it’s not quality time.”
