Luckily Vsauce has provided us with a quick rundown of some of the highlights we will be missing, like super novae in our galactic neighborhood, the collision of Andromeda and the Milky Way, and the Moon's orbit degrading such that it no longer eclipses the sun. There are so many Instagram opportunities we're going to miss if we don't refocus on an expansive tree of life search.
