Astronomers theorize that the faster expansion rate is due to a mysterious, dark force that is pulling galaxies apart. One explanation for dark energy is that it is a property of space. Albert Einstein was the first person to realize that empty space is not nothing.
How can the universe expand if its infinite?
If we assume the universe is infinite, then it’s not really expanding into anything. Because the universe’s size is already infinite, its size can’t increase. So essentially, if the universe is of infinite magnitude, it cannot possibly be expanding into anything.
What’s outside of space?
To answer the question of what’s outside the universe, we first need to define exactly what we mean by “universe.” If you take it to mean literally all the things that could possibly exist in all of space and time, then there can’t be anything outside the universe.
What’s beyond the universe?
The trite answer is that both space and time were created at the big bang about 14 billion years ago, so there is nothing beyond the universe. However, much of the universe exists beyond the observable universe, which is maybe about 90 billion light years across.
