io9 on how the world will end:

"Some scientists think that, if intelligent life survives that long, civilizations might be able to move the Earth, slipping it out of the range of the sun. Even if that happened, though, the sun will eventually collapse until it's the size of the Earth, and simply sit there, cooling. At that point, any survivors on the boiled, baked, and barren remains of the Earth they salvaged would simply freeze to death."

Stephen Hawking's theory is much more realistic and terrifying: no advanced civilization has ever made it here because they destroy themselves before being able to do it. Sounds a lot like our current trajectory.
