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.

Автор Brad Woodfield (1 месяц)
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.

Автор Justus McNeal (12 дней)
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.

1. If the universe is infinite, how can the question even be coherent?
I.e., If the fabric of our universe is space/time, and more is being added
-- while at the same time expanding from a dense point into itself, how is
this coherent?

2. The question unanswered: You are in a ball of expanding flat space/time
(think of the chocolate cookie dough example not the outside surface of a
balloon example) and somehow travel to the last galaxy; you continue to the
inside edge of where 'fabric' ends; what will happen if you travel one
meter more?

3. If there is a multiverse, and gravity waves are caused by universes
bumping, what is the stuff between them that they are expanding into? And
if it is literally nothing (non-existence) how is it coherent they are

I await a response that does not spend almost six-minutes to say, we don't
know; it does not concern us; or, conflate the concepts which confuse the
topic and question posed.

time linked, third dimension is an illusion, space is a hologram, energy
out of nothing, virtual particles, time is an illusion, etc... I did not
know that a year ago... If this goes on I think in a few years time, I will
learn that my whole existence is an illusion created by my own illusive
brain or something?

Can't imagine a universe that goes on forever or infinity! On the other
hand can't imagine one where u come to a stop and hit dead wall, what then
lies on the other side of the wall. And if it does curl up on itself like a
bubble, one would have to imagine what and if there are other bubbles
outside. I have a distinct feeling it's a question we cannot know right
now, our evolutionary has not brought us far enough to withstand the
answer. If we can step out and be able to see the whole thing, shape and
structure, and if there are other universes, we would just collapsed and
die. Our brains just aren't wired to understand or comprehend something
that large, we simply cannot take it!

If there is nothing that means something has to be there otherwise nothing

If everything is getting further away when the universe is constantly
expanding. I'm guessing gravity is the only thing keeping clusters

go the less things you would find. Or would it mean as the rim expands so
does everything in it. And that would mean that as the universe expands. Is
core becomes less populated by cosmic dust galaxy's ext. 

Автор Astrologer Promod (5 дней)
Why you feels that the UNIVERSE is moving away? It is due to the lack of
knowledge about the Structure of Universe. To know about it go to VEDAS or
go to KALIYUGAPURANAM ( in Malayalam) which explains VEDAS fully on the
basis of modern science. There you can see the Structure of Universe. Then
only you can understand why you feel that the it is moving apart.

Автор gboy1441 (3 месяца)
or what if infinity or a boundary both dont apply to an answer? we are
trying to answer the question based on the laws of our universe, our local
laws, our 5 senses/perception. its quite possible there are factors,
constructs, causes, materials, or other things within existence, that make
the answers unknowable and immeasurable. for all we know, it may be
possible within creation for impossibilities to exist somehow, thus making
both science and philosophy just tools to help analyze or speculate on some
of the facets of existence.

i know the best we can do is use what we have or guess within the
constructs of our 5 senses, experiences and local laws, obviously, and we
are limited, but still, just speculating its quite possible that even the
word "existence" morphs or changes into something else to explain how these
paradoxes and impossibilities exist.

heck, even if you say theres "nothing" beyond all of existence (not just
the universe but existence, even any god that exists), then would it still
be insane to say that "nothing" isnt something. And how could anyone ever
know if that "nothing" is just a void that leads to something else.

I think its just endless. Even if you could peruse and know 99.9999% of all
of existence, unless you know the last .0001% you cant truly say you
understand all of existence. Ie, a man travels 99.9% of the earth and finds
no purple unicorns, can he truly know for sure purple unicorns don't exist
unless he views all 100%? no he cannot. he can only assume based on

I still want ALL my questions answered !!!! I guess I will never get

groups that have other conflicting god stories. It all boils down to a
popularity contest for the most believable GUESS while there's no clear
evidence that personalities survive brain death to make contact with the
living. I ask myself seriously if my dying will end my thinking and my best
educated guess is that it will. I think my choices with how I live will be
limited to what I know for sure, what I'll leave behind for the living, and
how I might want people to remember me. I don't want to be remembered as a
superstitious person that prays on my knees. I am a free man on the inside
and I get to decide if I'm guilty of being unkind or unfair. Time travel
and light speed travel for humans is just Sci-fi dreaming.

Perhaps the boundary is not located/happening at some edge of the universe
where potential becomes space-time but instead the boundary may exist in
the relationships/interaction of matter at any location. In this sense we
would be looking inward instead of outward in order to find the limits.

how can the universe be expanding, surely just the stars and planets that
were created in the big bang are just expanding into the universe that was
all ready there. as the universe means everything it can not expand as its
infinite as what ever is beyonde the universe is the universe too. just a
