STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - The "astounding" discovery that the expansion of the universe is speeding up won the Nobel physics prize on Tuesday for three astronomers whose observations of exploding stars transformed our view of the world, and of how it may end.
Their work gave birth to the theory of dark energy, a kind of inverse gravity, that causes the expansion to accelerate. Up to three quarters of the universe seems to comprise dark energy -- but just what it is a matter of speculation, notably at facilities like the Large Hadron Collider at Geneva. Many hope an answer could reconcile apparent anomalies in physics.
ok Cags, Paradigmsearch,wesman .and any other geeks want to chime in?

Where is Heaven or Hell actually located in a turning Universe?When Heaven or hell is spoken of there is the indication of direction, up or down. This becomes complicated in a turning and expanding Universe.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbruPR3o0ZcThis is the "torus" theory for the shape of the universe. It shows how the universe can be eternal, yet how we can still see it as "expanding". Conservation laws are kept, as the total mass/energy is the same forever,in a closed system.

Most people I talk to have a concept of the universe as a fixed amount of space with some sort of boundary surrounding it. Some people believe God lives beyond this "boundary".Please explain why you believe there is a boundary, what it consists of, what is beyond this boundary, and why...

on the religion forum I was describing what I thought was quantum physics...that the universe is accelerating and expanding in a spiral. Is that quantum or something else or combination of things...?
