? Tens of billions of years from now the Universe experiences a cataclysm because of the size of the mass of the Higgs Boson (126x the proton).
3,000,000,000,000 The Universe stretches out so much that the galaxies stop expanding, while the Big Bang background radiation fades so much that only isolated pockets of stars remain; a revised estimate made in 2007.
100,000,000,000,000 (10*14) The Stelliferous Era (begun 10K years after the Big Bang) ends, and the Degenerate Era of the Universe begins (ends 10**46), where dark energy causes the expansion of the Universe to accelerate, as planets detach from stars, stars and planets detach from galaxies, and most of the ordinary matter in the Universe becomes locked up in degenerate stellar remnants (white dwarfs, neutron stars, black holes), finally ending up in proton decay.
10 billion trillion trillion trillion (10**46) The Degenerate Era ends, and the Black Hole Era begins (ends 10**100), where only black holes remain, eventually evaporating into photons and other radiation.
One Google (10**100) The Black Hole Era ends, and the Dark Era begins, with waste products (photons, neutrinos, electrons, positrons) wandering through a super-sized Universe, and occasional "atoms" larger than the visible universe of today formed from electron-positron pairs, finally going totally cold and dark, reaching heat death (maximum entropy); (big wave of the hands here) it then goes into reverse somehow, ending with the Big Crunch? - and so the universe is eternal, cycling over and over, without itself evolving into, er, God?
TBD The artificial border between the U.S. and Mexico is dissolved after political unification in a U.S. of 60+ states. "The Decline and Fall of the United States Empire" is written by ? The first practical self-contained air environment suit (space helmet for smokers and/or air pollution sufferers) is mass-marketed, and becomes mandatory. A cheap easy way to drain/suck/melt fat from body tissues is perfected (like melting Crisco, or better yet, like pissing it away), ending obesity. The first organism is brought back from extinction. The first human is cloned and lives to full maturity; voting age; has children; has grandchildren; dies at a ripe old age; the same human is cloned twice; a thousand times; a billion times. Designer babies become a reality. The Internet or a replacement becomes secure enough for electronic voting, commerce, banking et al., without fear of electronic crime. The Internet 'R' Us (built into our brains). The software quality problem is solved. Encrypted information becomes trivial/forever impossible to break. Antibiotics finally win/lose completely against mutating bacteria. The first general cure for cancer, AIDS, the common cold, and other viruses are developed. The cures for genetic diseases such as muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig's disease are perfected. The regeneration of spinal cord tissue (any/all organs) is perfected. Inexpensive mechanical replacements for defective human limbs and organs are perfected; ditto cloned replacements. Millions/billions of new taste/texture/smell sensations are created for foodstuffs; ambrosia, the food of the gods is mass-marketed. The ruination of world resources finally ends and is reversed/becomes irreversible. Inexpensive, light, non-cumbersome human body armor is developed that can protect against wild animals, knives-spears-swords-guns-bombs, chemicals, biological agents, and equalize female and male muscular/athletic abilities. Genetically-enhanced performance changes all professions including athletics and the military. Biological limits can be eliminated, such as the need for sleep, breathing of air, libido, palatable food. Deafness, blindness, dumbness and lameness can be inexpensively cured. Famous people such as Einstein and Hitler are cloned and live to maturity; extinct organisms such as woolly mammoths ditto. The first successful technique for freezing and reanimating live humans is perfected; millions choose to be frozen while still alive in the hopes of reanimation after methods for achieving human longevity are perfected.

Global mixing of human genes leads to a raceless world; living examples of obsolete races can be manufactured at will; race becomes a fashion statement, easily and inexpensively changeable; ditto gender and sexual orientation, looks, build, height, weight. Groups of human clones develop group rights similar to patent and copyright; 10%/50%/100% of humans become clones. The first female/lesbian/gay/non-white/flavor-of-the-day U.S. pres. is elected. The threat of Islamic/Christian/Jewish/all terrorism is finally ended. Permanent peace in the Middle East is secured. The Temple of Jehovah in Jerusalem is restored, including animal sacrifices. Creationists/Evolutionists shrink to a small religious sect. The Messiah (Christian, Jewish, Muslim or other) either comes, cums, or is finally given up on by all; in the latter case, Christinsanity and Islaminsanity are treated as mental viruses and immunization supplied to all. The world adopts a common currency/language/court system. The first session of a one-world govt. is held and world peace is declared to worldwide celebrations. The economic development of the last world sector ends the existence of the Third World. Income taxes are abolished; ditto all taxes, and finally money itself. The complete action of DNA is determined and becomes subject to engineering discipline. The human life span is extended to 100/150/200/300/500/1,000/10,000/100,000/1,000,000 years. Every human is beautiful and sexy; every human ass finally becomes clean enough to eat off of; people can go naked and have sex in public at all ages; everyone achieves total sexual satisfaction; there are no more phobias or prejudices, including pedophilia and incest; rape laws are reduced to petty offenses. Males and/or excess testosterone are phased out of the race. The first human city deep underground/in the oceans/in the clouds/in low orbit, on the Moon/Mars/another planet or orbit/another star system is founded. The principle of the human brain and its higher cognitive faculties is discovered, and can be artificially replicated. The first artificial brain with cognitive faculties equal to humans is developed. Humans no longer have to program computers but only supply system specifications to something intelligent that does the rest; the devices become intelligent enough to supply their own system specs. The first android with self-sufficiency and mechanical agility equal to a human is developed. Artificial devices permit humans to communicate easily regardless of native language. Humans can finally preserve their mental existence indefinitely with technology; dead humans can be effectively resurrected. Androids do all the physical/mental work for humans while remaining subservient. The ability of humans to easily regenerate limbs and organs is developed; ditto the ability to achieve transhuman configurations (e.g., three arms). Simulation/illusion technology is perfected to the level of the Talosians in Star Trek. The quantum theory of gravity/electroweak breaking is completed and experimentally verified. The unification of all forces of nature has been theoretically and experimentally verified. Travel at multiples/exponentials of the speed of light is perfected. Humans no longer depend on sexual reproduction. All victimless and thought crime laws are dropped from the laws worldwide. Organized religions no longer can harm people or society, nor can corrupt govt. officials. All jails are abolished; ditto police and judges - except for govt. officials. Gamma ray/cosmic ray/gravity ray weapons are developed. Travel through the interior of the earth and other solid planets becomes easy, cheap and routine. Humans become a self-designing lifeform. Death is conquered. A Historyscope is developed based on reconstructed knowledge of the past; a foolproof way to uncover and view and/or verify events in the past is developed and/or a foolproof way to disqualify alleged historical facts is developed. The extra-terrestrial intelligence question is solved; humans are stunned when they find they are/aren't alone in the universe; the first human-ETI contact is made; the first human-alien murder occurs; the first human-alien sex occurs; the first human-alien war takes place; the first convert of a human/alien to an alien/human god/religion/philosophy occurs. The end of the universe question (steady-state, expanding, cyclical) is solved/proved unsolvable. The ultimate questions in cosmology, how/why the universe came into being are finally answered. Humans/aliens/artificial lifeforms become as gods and can create their own worlds/universes, and live forever; alternatively life is found to be finite, incapable of indefinite reproduction or artificial creation, and to have a doomsday date.
