People, planets, stars and even universes are born, they live for a while and then die. I will review what we know about the origin of the earth and the origin of the life on it -- the coming extinction of this life and the death of the Earth and Sun. The second law of thermodynamics is relevant to the birth and death of the universe. I will try to explain why. The main goal of the lecture is to paint a picture of how we got here and how we fit into the universe.
