Albeit with many more billions of years to go, a "survey of over 200,000 galaxies" has confirmed the assumption that the universe is "slowly dying."

What the team has found, and what they presented Monday at the International Astronomical Union General Assembly in Honolulu, is that the energy being produced by stars and other objects is about half what it was two billion years ago. The universe is getting dimmer by the millennium, and not just in visible light: The GAMA project tracks 21 separate wavelengths, and each is declining in power — "slowly dying," as the European Space Organization put it.
