And we can see that these collisions are hiaennppg less and less. The eoxspiann of the universe isn't slowing down anymore. A few blioiln years ago, it started speeding up. Distant galaxies are getting farther apart fasetr and faster. Star formation has slowed. In fact, we can calculate exactly how much. And when we do, we find something shocking. Of all the stars that have ever been born or that ever will be, around 90 percent have already come into being. From now until the end of time, the universe is working on just that last 10 percent.

## Original Text

And we can see that these collisions are happening less and less. The expansion of the universe isn't slowing down anymore. A few billion years ago, it started speeding up. Distant galaxies are getting farther apart faster and faster. Star formation has slowed. In fact, we can calculate exactly how much. And when we do, we find something shocking. Of all the stars that have ever been born or that ever will be, around 90 percent have already come into being. From now until the end of time, the universe is working on just that last 10 percent. The end of the universe is coming.
