 > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_far_future for the 
doom-y details.

"14.4 billion    Sun becomes a black dwarf as its luminosity falls below 
three trillionths its current level, while its temperature falls to 2239 
K, making it invisible to human eyes.[43]"

Since when is 2239 K invisible? (I assume we're talking surface temperature)

And why 2239K and not 2240K? We know this to the exact degree?

Something is wrong on the Internet....
