SuperPlusFun GreatRead

"But how can an infinite universe be consistent with what we see? Can a universe be infinite and expand from a Big Bang? Yes, but only if you don't assume the Big Bang started from a single spot. Imagine a Big Bang that happened everywhere at the same time. This is difficult to imagine without splattering your brains all over the person next to you as you read this, but it's also totally consistent with what we observe. In such a universe, the Big Bang exploded everywhere all at once.

Which of these scenarios (finite matter in infinite space, finite matter in finite space, infinite matter in infinite space) is our reality? We have no idea."
