Caption

Dead Earth. Artwork of a white dwarf Sun shining over a barren, lifeless future Earth. This will be the fate of the Earth and the Sun, many billions of years from the present time. The Sun will heat up and slowly expand as it ages, baking the Earth dry. In around 6 billion years time, when the Sun has used up its nuclear fuel, it will flare up and massively expand into its red giant stage. That Sun may engulf and destroy the Earth. If the Earth survives, it will freeze as the Sun collapses into its white dwarf stage. This Sun is too small and feeble to provide any heat. It will gradually cool and go out over trillions of years.
