gCarroll is unsure as to whether in your usage of the word 'world' you are reffering to the planet itself, life on the planet Earth, or perhaps more specifically the human civilization (if one can call it that).

A very big star blows up basically. The sun won't do that, it'll just turn into a red giant.

The world as we know it may come to the end by human actions, but the world itself (and humanity) should be around till (and hopefully after) the death of our star...oh and if we survive that we have the collision with andromeda to look forward to

this planet will not survive the death of our star. Jupiter and its moons will though

not after - when the sun dies it will swell up as far as Mars - hence we end up inside it :rolleyes: but we got a few billion years yet

What are the chances the human race will survive till then? This also includes the possibilities of comets, human actions, etc.

there is no way there will ever be life on earth by the time we notice the effect of our drift towards the sun or its cooling and expasion towards us. It would be cool to see the sun explode though for like the 1 second we do!! it would be the biggest firework!

It worries me you speak as in third person.

1) there might still be life when it starts to expand
2) the sun will not explode. It'll expand and then shrink down again.
