noun  Astroeschatology

the study of the far future in astronomical terms, especially as this relates to human civilisation.



Astro-English: from Astronese, the word cosmic is used to denote “the astronomical world and its phenomena” which when coupled with the word eschatology as “the study of death, the afterlife and the final destination of the soul and of humankind”, refers to the consideration of these and other related concepts as involving or otherwise taking place in the astronomical world and hence is the basis of the Eschatology of Astronism.
