The edge of the Universe could be exploding and we wouldn’t know it
The farthest observation is 13.5billion light years away. Everything out there could have been exploding for billions of years before now and we wouldn’t know it yet.

Seriously how would we know if the edges of the universe are destructing right now?

yep...if I remember right, the universe is expanding at a hell of a rate...so things may happen and the light never gets back to us so we never see it happening.

There could be places exploding with life like 20 light years away. Hell Europa and Titan could have life. Mars is naturally producing methane despite the planet being dead. We don't know shite.

And it's expanding faster and faster and we don't know why.

In fact, it's expanding so fast, we are becoming more and more isolated.

Eventually, we will truly be all alone in the universe.

Question is, if it is exploding, will it outpace the sun going red giant and swallowing the earth in 5 billion years?

I think it would be neat to be staring up at the Big Dipper, then all of a sudden one of the stars just goes away.

We'd have to rename the constellation, correct?

Touching the ever expanding concept, imagine that one day in the very far future there will no longer be stars in the sky. The universe will have expanded to the point that everything will be so far apart that light will not be able to move fast enough to match the distances being traversed by the source. I think its called universe heat death.

We will never live long enough for that to be an issue.

And if it is all of us are going to be long dead before it could possibly have any effect on us. Not only that, but our entire planet and sun would likely be burned out before it reached us.

Wouldn't that mean neither could be considered a universe then?

Humans? We will need to find another planet/solar system to move to when the sun becomes a red giant, because it will swallow up Earth. After that, we will have to find a new galaxy to live in, because the Andromeda galaxy and the Milky Way are on a collision course. Hopefully we can figure it all out in the next billion years, before it happens.

Different laws apply to both. One is being aborb by another. Ultimately the perfect universe will result
