A view from the ground looks up into the grinning face of the sun. In 6 to7 billion years the sun will become a red giant and explode, but don’t worry, the oceans will rise and boil long before that. By then, I think I’ll be a brain in a vat riding my spaceship somewhere nice, bumping Slowdive because I’ve got loads and loads of Bitcoins. (Gabriel Fiorini | Northern Star)
