Timeline of the Far Future

Wikipedia has a few Timelines of the future. Some are lame, like the Timeline of the near future which lists only 6 things in the 2010s. But I found the Timeline of the far future to be really interesting and probably more accurate than Mayan predictions.

"While predictions of the future can never be absolutely certain, present scientific understanding in various fields has enabled the course of the far future to be plotted if only in the broadest outlines. These fields include astrophysics, which has revealed how planets and stars form, interact and die; particle physics, which has revealed how matter behaves at the smallest scales, and plate tectonics, which shows how continents shift over millennia."
