• Nothingness.
  • The Universe is expanding into open space. Into nothing.
  • The universe is expanding but isn't expanding INTO anything. Certainly not into a void. Imagine an infinite ruler - it goes on for ever. Now imagine that you are near the point where the ruler says "6 inches" (or 15 cm). Imagine the spacing between the marks begins to expand. The 5,4,3 marks to your left get further away from you, with the 3 receeding more quickly than the 5. The 7,8,9 marks to your right get further away from you, with the 9 moving faster than the 7. What is the ruler expanding into? It isn't. It's an infinite ruler. it's not taking up any more space than it was before.
  • The universe is thoritically infinite this is why imaginary numbers exist. We must exhibit the proportional relationship of distances between clusters of galaxies and the the rate they are moving. It is said to be infinite because we still are looking for a constant. Cepheid variables is the meaurement of experiment..We need to learn more about the eagle nebula but lack of funds and technological flaws have caused disasters as we have seen...The Government gives less grant or funds for Nasa due to the ongoing war. Into nothing perhaps but apluto a dwarf star lost out of orbit is like the human brain no moon no value of relection. The Universe is in an early mid- life crises the sun is brighter than ever but only bacause it is dying at a slow rate and as it absorbs the closest planets and the planets with more moons or methane ...only a meteroite can cause re- birth...only item which has the 13 amino acids..this is why the general population speculate on area 51. AS the universe expands it is farther away from the sun and the sun is the main source of life...All has an end.
  • I have read all the preceding answers (4) and this is what I think...okay bear with me... The universe is expanding into an of itself. It is infinite in all it's complexity and potentiality. Simple really.
  • 2004 News Releases Henize 206. Related Links: + Image caption + Spitzer home page NASA Creates Portrait of Life and Death in the Universe March 8, 2004 In a small nearby galaxy lies a luminous cloud of gas and dust, called a nebula, which houses a family of newborn stars. If not for the death of a massive star millions of years ago, this stellar nursery never would have formed. The nebula, Henize 206, and the remnants of the exploding star that created it, are pictured in superb detail in a new image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Henize 206 sits just outside our own galaxy, the Milky Way, in a satellite galaxy 163,000 light- years away called the Large Magellanic Cloud. It is home to hundreds and possibly thousands of stars, ranging in age from two to 10 million years old. The Man Behind the Nebula Dr. Karl Henize was an explorer at heart. He grew up on a small dairy farm outside Cincinnati, Ohio, and his boyhood heroes were Buck Rogers and Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to reach the summit of Mount Everest. As a ground-based astronomer, Henize surveyed the southern hemisphere, cataloging stars and nebulas. Later in life he ventured toward the stars when he became an astronaut and flew aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger at age 59. He still holds the record as the oldest rookie in space. JPL's director of the NASA management office, Dr. Robert A. Parker, and Henize were classmates in astronaut school and remained friends for nearly three decades until 1993, when Henize died climbing Mount Everest. "Karl was the adventuresome type," says Parker. "He made no apologies for his age." "The image is a wonderful example of the cycle of birth and death that gives rise to stars throughout the universe," said Dr. Varoujan Gorjian, a scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., and principal investigator for the latest observation. As in other stellar nurseries, the stars in Henize 206 were created when a dying star, or supernova, exploded, shooting shock waves through clouds of cosmic gas and dust. The gas and dust were subsequently compressed, gravity kicked in, and stars were born. Eventually, some of the stars will die in a fiery blast, triggering another cycle of birth and death. This recycling of stellar dust and gas occurs across the universe. Earth's own Sun descended from multiple generations of stars. The new Spitzer picture provides a detailed snapshot of this universal phenomenon. By imaging Henize 206 in the infrared, Spitzer was able to see through blankets of dust that dominate visible light views. The resulting false-color image shows embedded young stars as bright white spots, and surrounding gas and dust in blue, green and red. Also revealed is a ring of green gas, which is the wake of the ancient supernova's explosion. "Before Spitzer, we were only seeing tantalizing hints of the newborn stars peeking through shrouds of dust," Gorjian said. These observations provide astronomers with a laboratory for understanding the early universe, and stellar birth and death cycles. Unlike large galaxies, the Large Magellanic Cloud has a quirk. The gas permeating it contains roughly 20 to 50 percent of the heavier elements, such as iron, possessed by the Sun and gas clouds in the Milky Way. This low-metallicity state approximates the early universe, allowing astronomers to catch a glimpse of what stellar life was like billions of years ago, when heavy metals were scarce. according to nasa
