Tuesday Afternoon Physics Poetry, Part Five: End of the World Edition

This is said to be the cosmologists poem: will the Universe end in a fiery Big Crunch or will it keep on expanding and cooling down and end in an icy Big Desert?

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Robert Frost
