It's been nearly a century since scientists first theorized that the Universe was expanding, and that the farther away a galaxy was from us, the faster it appears to recede. This isn't because galaxies are physically moving away from us, but rather because the Universe is full of gravitationally-bound objects, and the fabric of space that those objects reside in is expanding.
But this picture, which held sway from the 1920s onward, has been recently revised. It's been only 20 years since we first realized that this expansion was speeding up, and that as time goes on, individual galaxies will appear to recede away from us faster and faster. In time, they'll become unreachable, even if we journeyed towards them at the speed of light. The Universe is disappearing, and there's nothing we can do about it.
When you look out at a star whose light arrives after traveling towards you for 100 years, you're seeing a star that's 100 light years away, due to the fact that the speed of light is finite. But when you look out at a galaxy whose light arrives after traveling towards you for a journey of 100 million years, you're not looking at a galaxy that's 100 million light years distant. Rather, you're seeing a galaxy that's significantly farther away than that!

This is why I don’t recycle. What’s the point?
Good- we won’t have to die, we’ll just dissappear-
Arent there some other scientists working on how big is consciousness
It’s because of American Socialist DemoRats, Everything wants to get as far away from them as possible.
This is elitist science, formerly referred to as hogwash.
I figure if we lose a few of the miles, what does it matter.
Here's the article. This capture was news because they determined where it came from. It came from a Blazer, below is a picture of a Blazer:
Darn you, Entropy!
AlGore warned us - but would we listen?
Forbes can’t even figure out how Jeff Bezos runs a company.
And they are telling me that “Space isn’t growing, just the empty space between things that we observe is growing”
This author is to Science what a CNN reporter is to the truth. They are completely insane and have ZERO business talking on the subject.
They read another article, didn’t understand it and then wrote “their own” article. I see this all the time.
Andomeda is still moving our way.
This guy is a fraud. Every paragraph is nonsense.
That finally explains what happened to Nancy Pelosis brain.
Because nothing says “Astrophysics Expert” like a Burger King crown.
