    Humans have the possibility to last longer than our solar system and with a lot of luck last as long as our universe yes we will be quite different because of evolution and might not be even considered human anymore but it's still us. our descendants and we should be proud of that. But…… we might go extinct because "humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them."
    -Albus Dumbledore

    But we should make ourselves live here, where we started. At least for as long as humanly possible. (This is my opinion if I got anything wrong please correct me just be kind about it k thx)

    They won't know we were here, they'll just think it was the species that spread from old world to new world (The domesticated animals) that caused it. If their archeologists are any good, then maybe they'll figure humans made those species global.

    All this "evidence" presumes they have the patience to stick around long enough to analyze it. Chances are our descendants will have modified things to an even more exaggerated degree than we have, before their civilization collapsed. The "road builder" culture gets supplanted by the "gravity nullifying" culture with it's floating cities, etc. Then a mass extinction event occurs and nature resumes control of the macro world again. How much Xe 129 will be left as evidence of thermonuclear conflict?

    People sad because they think humans will go extinct and our planet will die out in Millions of years. How I see it is we will explore other planets, evolve, and those creatures you see in Star Wars is what the different human descendants will look like and be like. Different but will co exist. That's what I thinks gonna happen.
