The Universe Is Very Slowly Dying, As Scientists Helplessly Look On

It's thought the Universe will end in around a googolplex years from years.

A googolplex is one followed by a googol (which is one with 100 zeroes) zeroes. (Google takes its name from the googol. It was meant to be "googol", but they accidentally spelt it wrong).

A googolplex is so big it's impossible to write the number out in digit form in the observable universe.

The universe is only 14 billion years old, so it's actually just a baby. I don't know what percentage of googolplex 14 billion is, but it's a mind-bogglingly tiny percentage.

The Universe has barely even started life.
