In popular science presented in TV shows, documentaries, etc, there’s much more philosophy of science than science itself.

And the philosophy Western science is emitting is often nihilism.

Let’s take for example stories about how the Sun will expand by 50% in two billion of years and that will cause the end of life on earth’s surface, or about the cold death of the universe.

What exact use do viewers have from such demotivating information? The idea that everything they do not count, everything will be lost in some apocalypse soon, two billion of years ahead

Part of it probably stems from the sensationalistic nature of tv shows.

If there wasn’t an intention to make such low-vibration effect, wouldn’t those shows mention the theory of string as well for example? This say there could be parallel universes and civilization could switch inverses at some point and avoid those apocalyptic scenarios.
