The accelerating Universe

Post by brian livesey »

Did anyone see the BBC TV programme yesterday evening about the acceleration of the universe? It was interesting, but a bit convoluted and esoteric in places for the layperson.
It's still a puzzle as to why the universal expansion is accelerating. Who knows whether the acceleration might eventually kick-start the universe in a new direction, rather than it just ending in heat death?

Dear Brian
Yes & No ! I did start watching that TV programme but it didn't grab my attention.
Best wishes from Cliff
