You know something I don't understand?
The dark matter theory.
The dark matter theory is a scientific theory that was hypothesized to possibly explain the Universe's increasing rate of expansion. My father told me a couple years ago that the first thing he assumed after he heard that the Hubble space telescope had proven this was: Suppose the Universe began with that whole Big Bang thing. What happens to an explosion in space? Whatever's left shoots away from the epicenter and doesn't stop until it A) runs into something, or B) gets dragged into something by a nearby gravitational source.
Well, if the Universe itself is the remnants of an explosion in space, with nothing else to stop it, it's logical to assume that the remnants are going to careen farther and farther away from the epicenter until they reach or surpass the speed of light. After that, I have no idea what happens. But that's what my dad always thought, and that's what I now assume as some teenager in suburban Florida. It makes sense to me.
Is there something I'm not getting here?
