    No, the earth will have destroyed us. Believe me, it has survived far worse things than little human beings in it`s past.

    Bataleon27: if you believe that crap, you are an idiot. Plain and simple. Global warming = natural cycle.

    Humanity = cant do poo to the earth. Its too big.


    Also, I call BS on this video, anyways. OH MY GOSH, TINY FLUCTUATIONS, IT MUST MEAN THE EARTH IS GOING TO COLLIDE WITH VENUS OR MARS!!! BETTER SPREAD THIS CRAP AROUND!!

    Also, the title is misleading for two reasons.

    first, a billion years is hardly the near future.

    second, it said mars OR venus.

    Besides, two years ago they were saying that the sun would go supernova in a billion years, but I guess Mars and Venus are co-conspirators of the sun and they`ve decided to change the plan or something.

    Venus is a rock planet, the only gas planets are the `gas giants` Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

    Thatwasfunny:
    For starters:

    Secondly: "In the mantle, temperatures range between 500 °C to 900 °C (932 °F–1,652 °F) at the upper boundary with the crust to over 4,000 °C (7,200 °F) at the boundary with the core."

    Thirdly: Much of the kinetic energy will result in heat. Whilst the exact physics of planetary collisions escape me, I`m fairly sure there`s enough energy floating around that a hell of a lot of heat will be generated.

    "Why did the earth look like it does now? In a billion years the continents would have shifted a lot."

    True, but they are scientist, not psychics. Plus, most people aren`t smart enough to realize that the planet would look different, and if they made it look different, people would be like "but that`s not the Earth."

    Well if Humans exist a billion years from now, we will not only have the technology to go to another planet, but we will likely have the technology to simply move the planets into whatever pattern we see fit to. No collisions on our watch.

    Calling the orbits unstable implies a completely different physical phenomenon, he would have been better off saying perturbed, or something similar.

    Just as the Earth is dynamic and can surprisingly "fix" problems, its just as possible that the orbits would react similarly. Of course its been a couple years since I`ve studied orbits, but it seems like a very unlikely scenario. I`m personally more worried about the Sun`s constant increase in luminosity. It only needs to increase a fraction and then it can boil of the oceans and Earth will be the next Venus. That`s probably on the timescale of a billion years too.

    Tachiinii, billion years isn`t "the near future" in scientific terms.
    At tops they think the universe is 14 billion years old.
    Another billion years will be a 15th of the entire existence of the universe..... that`s not small

    Hmm, it seemed like Earth`s orbit became smaller than Venus, but I couldn`t tell if our orbit was smaller or Venus bigger.

    Anyways, what are the odds of the perfect head on collision they showed? It`d be 100,000,000,000 times more like to be an off-center hit, I`m sure.
