4 billion years..... enough time for us to build a Dyson sphere and ship the nuclear waste into the sun
Well that is how long the sun will last more or less before that nuclear engine runs out of fuel however long before that we will be dead, I would give it another million years before life as we know ends. We are overdue for quite a few things, yellow stone, san andreas fault, massive asteroids, sharknados at least that is what the movies promises.
Honestly the biggest issue is probably going to be sun as it expands and starts heating up. Additionally the moon also helps drive the earths magnetic fields and that is slowly spinning away from us as it does so will the magnetic sphere grow weaker and have less protection from solar flares ect.
We will be long dead before we are able to advance our sciences enough.
