Scientists have found that the universe is expanding in all directions at once, but how can that be? And what is it expanding into?
The Universe Is Expanding Faster Than We Thought
“Less than 20 years after the startling discovery that the expansion of the universe is accelerating — a finding that led to a Nobel Prize in Physics for two teams of astronomers — comes a potentially more jarring revelation that the cosmos is busting out in all directions even faster than predicted.”
Cosmology safe as universe has no sense of direction
“The new study, published today in Physical Review Letters, studied the cosmic microwave background (CMB) which is the remnant radiation from the Big Bang. It shows the universe expands the same way in all directions, supporting the assumptions made in cosmologists’ standard model of the universe.”
