Timeline of the far future →
While predictions of the future can never be absolutely certain, this list of predictions follows from present scientific understanding and models. These fields include astrophysics, which has revealed how planets and stars form, interact and die; particle physics, which has revealed how matter behaves at the smallest scales, and plate tectonics, which shows how continents shift over millennia.
