I've seen movies reflecting the end of the Earth. Based from your calculation, how long will the Earth stood still? This is quite scarry.
Unless human activities destabilizes our biosphere, Earth should remain habitable for at least 500 million to 1 billion years before the sun, which is slowly growing hotter, will cause a runaway greenhouse effect that will make life on this planet impossible. But assuming humanity survives that long, we may find ways of coping with the temperature increase, such as a solar shield, or even moving the planet away from the sun. Or, we could migrate to other planets in the solar system and beyond. In the meantime, relax! And welcome to Space.Com!JasonOne":1mtzhiwz said:I've seen movies reflecting the end of the Earth.

This, and the earth itself should still remain. Unfortunately it will be a lifeless cinder :shock:SpeedFreek":1iz0jxp9 said:Hi, welcome to the SDC (space dot com) forums.
Don't you let those movies scare you!
It is most likely that the Earth will last around another 5,000,000,000 years, until the Sun gets old and turns into a red giant.
