    Teh Universe

    Universe....such a small word to represent something unbelievable huge. I've read that the Universe is expanding?!
    So that puts meh into thinking that something is around our "universe" that has space. It provides space for us.
    We are the core of smth....

    What could you say that "something" is???

    Dude! No way!

    That's really all I have to add to this thread. Will edit post later with relevant material!

    EDIT: here we go. I reckon the core of the universe is, the core of... the universe.

    Well i don't think the universe is expanding, the fact that it has no end. I heard that our solar system is slowly getting pulled in to the middle of the universe. o_o

    You can't not believe the universe is expanding. It's expanding has been studied and measured since Edwin Hubble's redshift of galaxies which measures how different galaxies are proportionately growing a part AWAY from the center of the universe.
    Imagine this
    0 is the core of the universe.
    _ is space
    ~ is the milky way and
    % is other galaxies like the milky way.
    Now look at this diagram to help you understand.

    0___ ~___ %___%

    Pretend thats how are current universe is like. Edwin discovered that if you look at our universe over a period of time, we later look like this.

    0_________~________%________%

    See how it is moving farther apart?

    That's the best I can explain it D:

    Everything's gonna splod in x number of years, when the universe is pulled into itself after everything has become so massive gravity pulls everything together. :/

    From the research I have done, I have found that scientists say that the universe is expanding.

    There isn't anything, there and so the universe is expanding into that empty scape.

    As far as I know there is empty space where there isn't any gas or anything in it.
    And it would be black because, of the absence of light. Colors are just the different wavelengths of light bouncing off the object, so if there isn't any light, there isn't any color, hence it would be black.

    At the end of the universe there isn't space. If there were it would just be considered more of the universes. Perhaps there is no end, meaning you just loop around to the other side of the universe when you go to far. In that case how would you draw it, because it wouldn't be a cube or a square because there can't be any edges . The only way to think of it is a sphere. Something without bounders and when you get to the edge it isn't the edge at all, it's just more.

    Yeah, I guess you're right since the universe doesn't have a real boundary, I was just thinking about the empty, nothingness, beyond, all the stars. (that we know of)
    The universe is way to big for us to comprehend, I don't think that it loops around, but I don't have any evidence, to support my opinion,
