Reference the Cosmic Calendar on page 14 of your text and view the associated video clip found above and consider the following statement: In the last few tenths of a second before midnight of December 31 humans have developed an incredible civilization and learned a great deal about the universe. We are continuing to develop technology that is used to explore the vast cosmological expanse; however humans have also developed technology with which we could destroy ourselves. The dinosaurs survived about one week on the Cosmic Calendar: But, what about our species, all of humanity….will humans become extinct like countless other species on Earth? Incorporate time values within your reply and defend your position with supporting evidence. Please remember to respond from either the position that humans will become extinct or that humans will continue to survive.
