A grim future for observatories and mega space projects? Why single out such? How about paid "joy rides" into space or fertilizer driven farming techniques or overpopulation by humans? Unless the Earth's humans cooperate to find a way to generate sufficient needed energy without using fossil fuels, eventually, human activities and volcanos will dump more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than the carbon cycle can handle. For a historical perspective try: "The Ends of The World" by Peter Brannen. IMO, Now and the immediate future, (i.e to 2050ce) are not optimum times to invest ones' retirement monies into sunny beach front properties.
