The end of the world<br />A Presentation by: <br />Gladson Thomas<br />Northeast High School<br />Magnet Program<br />
Background<br />Several intriguing theories.<br />What are the actual chances of world ending?<br />Religion<br />
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.
Black Holes heading towards our solar system and collapsing everything in it.
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 />
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 />
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 />
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 />
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 />
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 />
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 />
