Will Our Descendants Survive the Destruction of the Universe?
The Universe, like the organisms that reside within it, is a mortal entity. Born in the Big Bang, it will eventually meet its fate through an equally cataclysmic process, whether it be in the form of a Big Rip, a Big Crunch, or an eternal deep freeze. Regardless, all life as we know it will be extinguished.

Indeed, the landscape of careers is changing. But knowing which vocations are around the corner is not obvious.
