Yes this thread will talk about the end of the universe, and more to the point how it will end by way of dark energy.
To learn more on dark energy go to science daily.
These links should help you understand it more. The 3rd link I think is the most simple. ( it has graphs. )
Now how is dark energy going to end it all you ask?
It is a force that is pushing/pulling on gravity( I guess thats how you can put it). Gravity keeps everything nice and not in a uncountable number of pieces and thus without it nothing could be.
Dark energy is makeing the universe expand faster and faster and the only way that could happen is if it was getting stronger and stronger. At some point it will be stronger so much so than gravity that everything will come apart at the sub-atomic level. That is a true Armageddon. When will this happen? I forgot but don't worry it is not in a number that I can count to.
Now there are still many things unknown about dark energy and seeing how everyone on this site may not want to get into a science debate this thread will have many points to talk on.
1. Do you believe that dark energy is what it is said to be? If no then give some sort of reason.
2. Did anyone else think Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann when thinking about dark energy and the end of everything?
3. What do you think will happen after everything goes and splits apart into a billion sub-atomic parts? ( A big ang to get stuff together again? )
4. Do you think that the end has happened be4 and that this supports the big bang?
5. I will add this if something comes to mind. )
Anything I need to make more clear?
(Note: I could not find the daily news I wanted from like 5 months back so these ones will have to do. )
