I obviously lack the intellect to understand the theory behind this, but according to Professor Jose Senovilla, Marc Mars and Raul Vera from the University of the Basque Country and the University of Salamanca have indicated that "time was winding down to the point when it would finally grind to a halt long after the planet ceased to exist."

The slowing down of time will eventually mean everything will appear to take place faster and faster until it eventually disappears.

Professor Senovilla told the New Scientist: "Then everything will be frozen, like a snapshot of one instant, for ever."

Gary Gibbons, a cosmologist the University of Cambridge, told the news website RT that the idea was not as absurd as it sounded.

"We believe that time emerged during the Big Bang and if time can emerge, may disappear as well as the opposite effect," he said.
