Dying Earth. Image 2 of 9. Artwork of the hot Sun baking a Mediterranean coastline 200 million years from the present time. As the Sun ages it will heat up, slowly evaporating the seas and eradicating all life on Earth. Water will eventually boil off into space, leaving Earth a dry and barren world. For a sequence showing the death of the Earth as the Sun expands and dies over the next five billion years, see images E402/058-066.
