    When the universe ends, it just loops back over. We'll all be born again and re-live out our lives. Hopefully you'll remember some of your past life and do things differently

    If we are talking about red dwarfs, don't they have less gravity than our sun?So a planet closer to them might not be in a lock relationship.Thus creating some sort of parallel with our sun and earth with a smaller scale.

    Red dwarfs stars are not conducive to life as we know it. Mostly because of the solar flares that can occur & also because of the close proximity to the star end short just go somewhere else yellow dwarfs like our sun would be the best ones to go to

    Life only has 1 billion years left on earth, intelligent life capable of leaving earth and carrying on that survival time elsewhere has manifested just in time. Crazy.

    Imagine a civilization reaching our level or even more advanced on a planet near the last red dwarf. They would have nothing to look at in the night sky. Could they even make theories on how the universe started? Would they be able to tell that trillions of years ago the universe was teeming with activity?

    I fear for the black dwarfs, seeing as how the white dwarfs are degenerates, they're probably racist too.
