Clock Counts Down to the End of the World

by


When I came across the Life Clock a few days back, I thought that the idea of a clock that gradually ticked away the years of your life was a wee bit morbid. Here’s another timepiece that’ll have you thinking even more happy thoughts.

gianni motti big crunch clock

Artist Gianni Motti’s Big Crunch clock is gradually counting down the approximately five billion years we have left until the sun blows up. The 20 digit LED display (pictured) began counting down back in 2005, so the way I figure it, we have somewhere around 4,999,999,991 years to go. Ironically, the clock runs on solar energy, so the same power source that gives it life will ultimately be its demise.

On the plus side, the entire clock will surely fail and disintegrate billions of years before it’s blown to smithereens by exploding solar gases. Now doesn’t that make you feel better?

  1. 世界の終わりをカウントダウンする時計…

    こちらは、芸術家Gianni Mottiが作った太陽が爆発するまでの50億年をカウントダウンする時計『Big Crunch Clock』だそうです。ソーラーパワーで駆動しているため、最終的には太陽の消滅と共…..

    Belive me It’s gona happen sooner.
    I conducted 3 possibilities.
    1) If you see a top moving in circular motion(just like earth ),it would be tiltd .you will notice that it slowly n steadily moves towards the center than it will be exactly on the center.Comparing this to Earth’s motion the Theory of big bang ang the expansion of universe is proved wrong.In fact the earth moves towards the center upto it reaches the orbit of mercury we would have been freezed by -173 C and heated like 427 C.The day is 27 Jan of 2012.

    2)If you belive that the earths temperature increases then just look at the following:
    The pH of water has decreased by 0.1 units
    The water is expanding due to Green house effect
    If we sum total the average of water added to the seas by the melting of poles and increase in the volume it’s about 7.1 to 23.6 inches.
    FOR THE ABOVE THE DATE WOULD BE 11 november 2011 to 27 December 2011.

    3) My third reason is the increasing pressure and the temperature of yellow stone national park and the mythology you know that!!!! According to my reason the earth’s crust will blow off like a hell andd the magma will rush out on the other hand the tectonics movement on the poles will not only melts the ice there but also it will push the water by BLACK SMOKERS’ pressure.

    Now you may me considering me fool BUT the above conditin can happen any time,I think u understand “””ANYTIME”””.
    WELL IT’S HUMAN NATURE TO CONSIDER OTHER’s FOOL &AND I WON’T FELL BAD IF U CONSIDER ME
    BUT PLEASE TRY TO EVACUATE & SECURE AS MUCH AS FAMILIES YOU CAN.
    THANK YOU!!!! DON’T TAKE IT LIKELY IT’s GONNA BE A HELL,
