The universe is expanding 5 to 9 percent faster than astronomers had thought, a new study suggests.

And how do you think it will ultimately effect the fate of the universe?

There have been a number of recent estimates of the Hubble "constant", and these have yielded a variety of values.

yes i have predicted it and the farther out in the expansion you look the faster it should appear to be accelerating and the farther back into the expansion you go the slower the acceleration should appear as my theory of gradational accumulation predicts i think the universe is slowing from the inside out and only appears to be accelerating i have posted some of the first part of this theory on this site the rest is in my mind i would be happy to give science the rest of it if someone would like to here it

You predicted it, impressive can you give me a citation relating to your personal prediction that the expansion of the universe was accelerating?
