What will be the ultimate fate of the Earth, Sun stars, and galaxies ? Put simply, what will be the fate of everything? Our view of the answer to this question has changed over the last decade or so. Come and hear about the role played by Dark Matter and Dark Energy, and what will truly be the end of history.
