- Booster Gold

According to a recent National Geographic article by Ket Than, some scientists from Cornell University have calculated the end of time. According to the theory of eternal inflation -- which also postulates the existence of a multiverse -- time must have an absolute end.
If probabilities are to work in a multiverse, there must be actual cutoffs that bring various universes to their ends, study leader Bousso says. According to the formulas used to calculate cutoffs, a universe that is 13.7 billion years old will reach its cutoff in about 5 billion years, his team concludes.
So now we know when Vanishing Point is! But don't worry, Hypertime fans. It seems that the same theory reveals that even though time will end in 5 billion years, the multiverse will go on. Assuming, of course, that there isn't another Crisis on the way.
