Hey, what is your view on the galaxies expanding, and the universe going back into a singularity?
From what I have gleaned from Stephen Hawking's works; A Brief History of Time, The Universe in a Nutshell, and The Grand Design, it seems that the universe is much more likely to just "burn out" as it were. Apparently, the speed at which the universe is expanding is projected to eventually make gravity unable to pull everything back in. It seems a bit anti-climactic and I would have liked to think that it would all collapse back into a singularity and possibly cause another Big Bang, starting the sequence of events all over again. I suppose not everything happens in neat little cycles.
I was under the impression that the universe's expansion was accelerating and that all of the galaxies will eventually drift completely apart into darkness.
The universe appears to be expanding along the dimensions we are able to perceive. But you know, String Theory proposes numerous unseen dimensions. Imagine a circular ditch in the ground. As water is poured into the ditch, it spreads in both directions, seeming moving further and further from its point of origin, but eventually the circle is completed and the water spreads back to where it began.

Do you believe life exists in the universe (other than on Earth)?

Science tells us the Universe is traveling. Where's it going if the Universe is all there is?Science tells us that the Universe is all that there is, that it is traveling and expanding at all times since the Big Bang.

So this is what I was remembering having read. If we can't discuss what was considered 1998's biggest scientific breakthrough on the science forum, where does it belong? www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3077857 and just Google...
