Abstract [en]

Life on Earth is threatened by asteroid impacts, supernovas, volcanic eruptions, ice ages, global warming and ecological disasters – all of which has almost eradicated life on Earth at several occasions in history. Through biological evolution life has risen in new forms after each global near-death experience. Now, in order to withstand the hostile environment of the universe, the process of evolution has forged a new weapon: mankind. With the power of thought and the ability to cooperate, humans have the potential to do something where previous creatures on Earth have failed: to improve conditions for life and to save it by spreading it to the cosmos. Mankind’s Universe stretches from the beginning of the universe, through the origin of life and the history of mankind to the future where we ourselves decide our fate. It is primarily directed to science enthusiasts and young adults with a scientific and technical oriented education. It can be used in educational purpose.
