Here are three theories:
3. Big Crunch and Big Bounce
The universe’s expansion slows down until it stops. Then it reverses and everything merges and heats up so hot that even stars are cooked until a supermassive black hole eats all of the things.
The most optimistic of the theories, the Big Bounce suggests the universe has been through this before and will continue to go through an infinite cycle of expansion and contraction.
Have a good day!
