Summary: The fate of the solar system is written in the stars. Astronomers are searching the skies for spectacular cosmic events that mirror our own distant future. As a result they can predict how the Sun and its planets will end in remarkable detail. It's an apocalyptic vision where galaxies collide, planets melt and life is wiped out. This BBC Horizon program visits these modern day prophets and recreates the hellish conditions our world may face in its last moments
