Ever wondered what doomsday outcome would be if doomsday hit planet earth, and humans were cleaned off the face of the Earth? Many have pondered on how terrifying it would be but the redeeming thing is that, there is a glimmer of hope afterwards.
A recent video shows that on doomsday, the Earth would recover from all the years-long ruins it has witnessed just in a heartbeat – though the process would be overly frightening.
In fact, within some hours, nearly all of the lights would go off since most of the power stations will not be able to run and within months, nuclear disasters would hit throughout the expanse of the planet.
And despite countless of years the earth has existed, the only thing that would proof human had existed on earth would be just structures made of stones like the Great Wall of China or Mount Rushmore.
‘The reason is irrelevant, just imagine the results,’ the narrator of the video, from viral YouTube channel ‘#Mind Warehouse’, says.
The video was created using footage put together by National Geographic.
The video animations were gotten from Life After People, a television series on which scientists, structural engineers, and other experts had opined would be the final result of Earth if the last day beckons eventually.

The video shows that a few hours after humans’ disappearance, fossil fuels power plants would run short of fuel and solar panels would be unattended to.
The only power plants that will be running would be hydroelectric stations.
‘On the west of the United States, the generators of Hoover Dam are started by water flowing from Lake Meade,’ the narrator says. ‘Thus, it can be left unattended for a lot of years.
Days later, a lot of underground train systems would become flooded because pumps which control the water would stop working.
Pets and farm animals – including billions of chickens and millions of cows – would perish out of hunger, while packs of carnivorous animals would eat up other animals.
Scores of disasters will be spread throughout the globe, ones that would be stronger than Fukushima and Chernobyl. This is because the cooling water in nuclear power stations is bound to evaporate.
And one year on, satellites around Earth would start to shed from their orbit, birthing weird ‘stars’ in the sky.
Twenty five years later, three-quarters of cities will be covered with vegetation, and some cities like Dubai and Las Vegas will be drowned by sands.
Amazingly, the air in cities will become cleaner and visibility will improve. All the poor activities affecting the environment will vanish in a blink off an eye. The face of the earth will be renewed and plants will grow.
In all, the world will on its own recover from the radioactive contamination rather fast and easily, the video says.
In the beginning of the year, Columbia University astrophysicists Michael Hahn and Daniel Wolf Savin penned down a write-up hinting on the way Earth will gradually fade off and it was titled ‘How to Survive Doomsday’ published in Nautilus.
According to the scientists, humans have less than 500 million years to enjoy the planet only if it shelves life-threatening activities – like self-inflicted nuclear apocalypse or an extinction-sized asteroid.
This comes well before the forecast that the world will ‘melt’ 6 billion years from now, when the sun inflates and turns into a red giant.
The forecast may sound gloomy but there is hope as researchers say there are a few ways humans can possibly save the future of the earth. One of the ways is by shifting the orbit of Earth.
‘If we fired a 100 km [62 mile] wide asteroid on an elliptical orbit that passed close to the Earth every 5,000 years, we could slowly gravitationally nudge the planet’s orbit farther away from the sun, provided that we don’t accidentally hit the Earth,’ the authors write.
