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

Автор assaultbravo14 (12 часов)
If there is no boundary then all the space and time that is needed is
already in place. There for the universe is not continuing to create space

If the universe has a boundary then either A. Space time has all been
created and the boundary is the limit of space time or B. Space time has
been forced to stop by another force. Example A. Put a drop of water on a
table and the water drop will have a boundary created because the volume of
water is not enough to continue expanding.
Example B. Pour a bucket of water on a table and set up walls to contain
that water.

Anyway you slice it space and time is not continuing to create itself.

So why are things going further apart from one another? Space time is
massive and was in place before any celestial body. Example the earth is
already created. On the fourth of July when a firecracker explodes in the
night sky what happens? The explosion moves out from its source. The parts
move further away from each other as the go along. But no one would say
that since the parts are moving away from each other more sky os being

This kimd of confusion amd silliness comes from the big bang theory. In the
beginning there was nothing, absolutely nothing. No space no time. Then all
of the sudden all of these gases came together and formed this super dense
singularity which exploded and produced the universe.

First this is how they explain it. But did you see what happened? I start
by saying there is no space, no time, nothing. Then i immediately talk
about space time amd something already being there. With no space then you
do not even have enough room to put the smallest of singularities. With no
time nothing would have the time to come together to form the singularity
or even the time to explode. If you have nothing you have no energy because
energy is something. Without energy then the singularity could not explode.
If there is nothing then you also do not have the gases to compress
together to help form the singularity and so on and so forth.

An example of the big bang theory is like me telling you I going to teach
you how to make your very own boots and boot laces. Then I will show you
how to properly tie and polish them up. I tell you, ok so right now we have
no materials, nothing. So now now that you have your boots and boot laces
completed here is how you tie and polish them. You would say hey wait. How
did you make the boots and laces? In the beginning there was nothing, no
space, no time, nothing. Then there was a whole bunch of various gases that
came together to form a super dense singularity.

This is a great example of why there IS a very real crisis in physics and

Автор willieofroanoke (3 месяца)
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?

I have a theory, I think that outside the universe there are other
universes and and parallel universes, like for example, if you drop your
ice cream, you create another universe where you didn't drop your ice
cream. Or for another example, if you break a 1000 vase at a shop, you have
to pay for it then your broke and you lose your house... etc, you create
another parallel universe outside our universe. And my theory on why we cat
see the boundaries of our universe is because our vision is teleported to
the other side of the universe (this one is pretty lame but whatever) like
an invisible (something that the brain cant prosses) wormhole or black
hole. I know your probably not reading this but if you are then well done,
your like me :-)

I'd like to think that there is a multiverse. We have yet to discover
anything that is unique in our universe. We though our sun was special,
there are countless others. We though our galaxy was special and we also
discovered that there were countless others. We think our Universe is
unique but why does it have to be? Unfortunately we will never be able to
see outside our own cosmic horizon so the multiverse theory can never be
proven. Also if there is a multiverse that also begs the question what are
they a part of and how do they come about. maybe those multiverse are a
part of a bigger body that body is in turn a part of another body and so
on. Or maybe our human brains aren't hard wired to understand the whole
picture. We may be intelligent compared to our fellow species but there is
only so much our brains are capable of understanding. Its like trying to
teach a dog calculus; no matter how you explain it the dog will never get

Ok, so someone else must have though of this.... Could this "expansion" be
an unfolding, of dimensions? We talk of dimensional space. We talk of
expansion..What may have started as eleven dimensional space has now
"unfolded" the the third. It is unfolding everywhere, at once. There just a
lot of it, and maybe this is where we get the allusion of "time" , which I
call an "Extra Dimensional Quality" because I believe it is the only thing
present at any and every event in the cosmos.. 

Автор Richard Garnache (24 дня)
The concept is just to hard to "see" ..... but the Space is created inside
our Universe in 4 Dimentional space so it both expands but does not get
bigger on the outside so their is no need to expand "into" something else.
Hard to warp your mind around I know but only because we live in 3
dimentions where things do need more room to expand. The speed Stars move
will eventualy prove this because eventually they will suprass 2XC meaning
they would both be moving faster than light IF they were moving into
something else. But if Space was being created in the middle they can move
faster than C. It's pretty much impossible to imagine but it's like a
basketball that rather than blowing up to become bigger just has more space
inside it than before making it appear bigger to the inside observer. It's
the same size it always was to the outside observer, it just has more
Space ..... Like I said impossible to imagine but true. A good analogy in
the 3 dimentional world would be pressure ..... you can pump air into
something that does not expand but their is still more air in it just also
has more pressure ..... you can expand the universe without making it
bigger it just has more space !

If the universe is a four dimensional sphere then it contains the only
space there is, so it's expanding into an even deeper void, not space, less

Автор shumayelahmed (1 месяц)
The universe is expanding into the same space and time that existed even
before the big bang. The universe cannot expand into something that has
boundaries and the big bang could not happen if space time did not exist
already, since in order to hold that very seed of big bang, a space had to
exist and thus time. Think of this as an exploding particle that needs to
be placed in some space in order for it to explode and in doing so only
creates/spreads new particles but not space itself. The big bang in the
same way did not create any space or time but only created matter of our
universe and spread it in the space/time that existed already. What we
think as creation of space and time is relative to our understanding and
observation of the universe. It is by all means possible that it has
existed and that the biggest thing we know of to exist might not be the
universe but space and time. If we think this way, there can be answers
sought through experimentation. A non existent space/time field basically
equates to zero possibility of any explosion or for that matter zero
possibility to even hold any particle or its existence since nothing =
