What is the Universe Expanding Into?

By popular Space Fan request, I offer this video to help answer some of your questions regarding the expanding universe. Many of you consistently ask: If the universe is expanding, then what is it expanding into?

This concept is non-trivial to try and explain in a 5 minute YT video, but I do my best. I hope this helps!

Thanks to all of you space fans for watching this channel, it means a lot to me.

"The fabric of space and time is expanding"
This is why I (being polite) call these people "babbling idiots"
*First-* Time doesn't exist, it's merely a measurement tool created by
humans to measure how long it takes for a particle to move from point *A*
to point *B* and,
*Second-* If space was "expanding" the most basic logic tells you that we
wouldn't be able to realize it because *EVERYTHING* would be expanding at
the exact same rate. Hence the solar system would be expanding, the earth
(and everything in it) would be expanding, WE would be expanding, and of
course our measurements devices would be "expanding" as well, *AND* with it
the measures themselves.

In the video he said that if there is a boundary we can never see it
because the universe is expanding. I've got a fair understanding of the
expansion of the universe concept (I couldn't follow the math to save my
life but I think I understand the concept fairly well) and of course
looking from earth we could never see the boundary if there is one but if
someday we derived a technology to warp space to travel faster then light
or create wormholes and teleport then what is stopping us from seeing the

The Presenter assertion that we did not have any knowledge of other
galaxies about 100 years a go is plain wrong. Maybe in the West they did
not , Ancient Indians however were fully aware on the Universe, Galaxies
and stars , Our own Galaxy was called the "Akash Ganga", Universe
"Bhramand" , they knew the earth was round and went around the sun. As far
as 3000 BC.

Another video that answers no questions. Watching another of his junk...
oops I mean "science" videos he said before the big bang there was
literally nothing. Not time, not what we refer to as space, no atoms, no
matter, no particles, nothing, nada, totally empty, just a big fat zero.

That begs a simple but tantalizing question. IF there was nothing,
absolutely nothing, how did anything happen? You have no space for any
Singularity to form in. If that's not a big enough problem you neither have
time for it to happen in. Yet science insists this magical Singularity of
their imagination is the cause of both time and space and everything in it.

If you protest and say our universe is but one of many in some limitless
multiverse that's a cop out because all I need to ask is how the first of
these came to be. If you said they all happened at once, I still can ask
how? Where did the first spec of matter/energy come from? Say it always
existed and the universe or multiverse is infinite that still avoids the
same question unless you say everything that is, ever was or will be
originated from nothing. Absolutely nothing. Anyone honestly think that
makes sense?

The question is a good question, but the answer is simple:

This question assumes that the Universe is "inside" of something, which is
an assumption that, even if true, which no evidence points to, then it only
begs the question "What is the thing the Universe expanding into inside of?
Eventually, you're going to arrive at a point where this "thing" isn't
inside of anything, and it is simply all there is.

The Universe isn't expanding. The idea of the expanding universe was based
off the idea of red shift of the light we were receiving. It was initially
thought that the red shift was caused by the objects moving away from us in
the doppler effect. It was later found to be cause by the rotational
energy of the body, but the idea of the doppler effect had already been
picked up and the new results ignored. The idea of the expanding universe
(and dark energy) goes against the laws of thermodynamics and conservation
of energy since the amount of energy to expand the universe quickly ramps
to infinity.

It all depends on what You call "our Universe". One thing is sure, our
"observable Universe" is about 28 billion light years in diameter and is
expanding into something that is also related to the Big Bang but we cannot
see because its beyond the Time barrier of the Big Bang.

@ Dean Bainbridge: When you see a comment that begins with the words "Time
doesn't exist", which then proceeds to totally dismiss one of the most
successful theories in the history of science, all you can really do is
ignore the nut job who posted it. He may be a religious fanatic, or he may
be a huckster peddling his own cosmology theory, but it's all simply
arrogance and ignorance, and there's never a way to penetrate that
combination. (The name calling starts really fast with these guys.) This
guy wouldn't be able to understand the theory's mathematics of General
Relativity, but he could understand the concepts of the theory with the
resources posted on the internet. He could understand the time coordinate
of cosmology by simply reading the Wikipedia article on "Cosmic Time." But
guys like this are not about to do something as simple as that. He prefers
to spout gibberish.

As I understand "space time"; If somehow all matter were frozen (stopped)
in a now moment, there would be no past or future Hence time would not
exist. Since all matter is moving, by all accounts in one direction "the
arrow of time" this gives us the past, the now and the future. And it can
work only in this way, barring warping space time, but that is a different

" ... the universe expanding into?" That is a misleading question. The
Universe is not expanding into anything but is simple expanding, and
thereby more space is 'created' that was not there before (to expand into).

If it expands over 16 billion miles a day. The end is near! Oh, excuse
me, I;m mixing science and religion here - oops. But it makes a kind of
sense since the Universe is theoretically curved. So, how large is the
Universe? Do you mean from the moment you asked, or the moment I answer?
Does the curve change the calculation? Oh, wait, it's another moment now
- must recalculate everything.
