Scientists say that they know when and how the Sun will die... but don't worry we will all be long dead!

In about 10 billion years the Sun will become a planetary nebula. Basically a ring-shaped nebula formed by an expanding shell of gas around an aging star. 

In about 5 billion years the Sun will turn into a red giant and consume Venus and Mars.

But what about our planet, well Earth only has about another billion years left, since the Sun becomes 10 percent brighter as it ages, that will be enough to evaporate all water on Earth, making life impossible.
