The Five Ages web log provides grounded speculation into how the future will unfold.The goal is to expand, update, and build on the themes of our (now more than decade-old) book:

The Five Ages of the Universe — Inside the Physics of Eternity

Fred Adams and Greg Laughlin (1999) Free Press.

The paperback edition is currently both in print and available (order here). Both this site and the book are written at the popular level, and seek to fill in the timeline for the extremely distant future.

A large number of interesting developments have occurred in physics and astronomy (and in the world at large) since our book was written, and many of these advances have a strong impact on our understanding of how the future will unfold.
