As a result, Earthly life might be considered "premature."
Astrobiologists will probably have their hands full in a few trillion years.
The odds of life evolving throughout the universe are 1,000 times greater in the far future than they are now, according to a new modeling study.
The finding suggests that life on Earth may be "premature" in the cosmic scheme of things, researchers said.
you might naively say, 'Now,'" study lead author Avi Loeb, of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said in a statement.
"But we find that the chance of life grows much higher in the distant future."
