Far beyond the limitations of human sight, the universe that sustains us has been expanding continuously since its birth at the big bang.
But all that might be about to change. The universe might be subject to an age old principle familiar to every human being: that which goes up, must come down! After billions of years of expansion, physicists at The University of Southern Denmark argue that it may be about to go into a state of collapse.
