By their calculation it’ll happen somewhere around the year 1,000,002,021. If you’re still on the waiting list for Hamilton tickets, you may need to plan accordingly. In a research paper published on Monday, the team describes the final moments before Earth loses its ability to support life as we know it: We find that future deoxygenation is an inevitable consequence of increasing solar fluxes, whereas its precise timing is modulated…
