  1. 1. The end of the world<br />A Presentation by: <br />Gladson Thomas<br />Northeast High School<br />Magnet Program<br />
  2. 2. Background<br />Several intriguing theories.<br />What are the actual chances of world ending?<br />Religion<br />
  3. 3. The beginning of the end<br />The three main causes of the world ending I focused on are:<br /><ul><li>The sun emitting super-flares frying the Earth, or becoming a Red Giant and consuming the Earth.
  4. 4. Black Holes heading towards our solar system and collapsing everything in it.
  5. 5. Polar shift ruining the order of everything
  6. 6. Volcano under Yellowstone erupting causing massive earthquakes. </li></li></ul><li>The sun getting a sun burn?<br />The sun emits solar flares frequently towards the Earth.<br />Possibility that the flames could break through Earth’s ozone layer.<br />This can disintegrate everything in Earth.<br />Decrease by a mere 1% can take us back to ice age.<br />
  7. 7. The sun getting a sun burn?<br />Heat causes things to swell<br />The sun can swell up and become what is known as a Red Giant<br />There is a chance the Earth might escape <br />No difference in the after affect. <br />White Dwarf. The Earth will be able to cool off.<br />
  8. 8. A Black hole? That sucks!<br />A place where nothing can escape, not even light.<br />Galaxy is full of collapsed stars waiting to turn into Black Holes!<br />Almost impossible to see.<br />It can just enter the solar system and distort all planetary orbits.<br />Cause extreme climate changes and even expel some planets, including Earth.<br />
  9. 9. Polar shift<br />False popular belief it will happen in 2012<br />The process happens slowly.<br />The phenomenon- the entire mantle of the Earth shifts changing the position of north and south pole.<br />Can result in-<br />Massive earthquakes everywhere<br />Colossal Tsunamis.<br />
  10. 10. Yellowstone volcano <br />One of the biggest volcanoes on Earth<br />Said to be similar to a super volcano<br />A super volcanic eruption can cause immense earthquakes and could end life on earth.<br />
  11. 11. The ending of the end<br />The world is definitely going to end one day.<br />It can be caused by any of the following-<br />The Sun<br />Black Holes<br />Polar Shift<br />Super Volcano<br />
  12. 12. What have I learned? <br />Many false theories going around.<br />The world will end one way or another.<br />Still want to know what other theories there are.<br />Will we find a way to escape all the catastrophes mentioned? <br />
