This question already has an answer here:

The plot of a story revolved in a future around dying universe. Some sort of physical law discovered at that time stated that at some moment forces keeping matter together will vanish, and anything, from galaxies to atoms will fall apart. People living on Earth started to see how distant objects disappear, at the same time they received a lot of ET transmissions that they tried to decipher.

I believe this story was written by an American author.

    Could it be "Last Contact" by Stephen Baxter, which was the answer to this question? – user14111 Jul 14 '17 at 20:58
