    Default The Edge of the Universe



    I wonder what is at the edge of the universe if there is ever an edge.
    Is it solid or empty space beyond it. Or when you reach the edge of
    the universe, does it connect to the other edge of the universe, much
    like circling the globe can make you reach the same destination to
    the shock and disbelief of those who believed that the earth was flat.
    What are the current theories about the edge of the universe?

    If you look at the night sky. It can give you such an immense
    distance perspective and make you think you are so isolated in the
    vastness of the universe. But is it merely an illusion? The
    non-local quantum effect may be explained by a universe based on
    higher dimension where space/time have other structures and the
    physical distance may just be an illusion.

    Astronomy is such mind boggling, mind expanding field, isn't it.

    Hi:

    Consider the surface of the Earth. Where's the "edge?" Same deal. ;-)

    Hi:

    Then take it one step further and consider the surface of Earth as a sphere in
    2 dimensional space. Like in _Flatland_. Flatlanders can't get off. :-)

    It's a great elephant standing on the back of a turtle. Now figure out what
    the turtle is standing on.
