Said loads of time already, but had to say something on topic: what'll probably end Earth as we know it
is either a Gamma Ray Burst or a meteor hitting Earth. THose are more like to end our civilization than the sun expanding, because that'll happen so unbelievably far in the future.
Anyway, the off-topic thing I really wanted to post, is about the reference to the Mayans. It is thought that the Mayans had, and used hot air balloons to, yes, fly. Wikipedia says this about it:
There is also some speculation that hot air balloons were used by the Nazca Indians of Peru some 1500 years ago as a tool for design vast drawings on the Nazca plain.
Too bad it's a bit short :S. I have this
link describing how researchers tried to rebuild hot air balloons with materials and tools of that time, and they succeeded. It's in Dutch though, and I'm only giving it to show I'm not making stuff up
Offffffffftopic, yet intruiging. Or something.
