Big fleas have little fleasupon their backs to bite them, and little fleas have lesser fleas,and so ad infinitumAnd the great fleas themselves, in turn,have greater fleas to go on;While these again have greater still,and greater still, and so on.[1872 A. De morgan Budget of Paradoxes 377]
That is a very credible scientific research. Though I differ. I am inclined to agree in the original concept of cosmological constant of Dr. Einstein ad Dr. Fred Hoyle. The universe is complete, in itself. It does not need to expand, for to consider that expansion into the void would mean setting a limit to the making of the universe. .the limit is up to that expansion, even though it is continuing expansion. .that therefore, what is not reached or beyond that expansion is not PART of the universe..not part of the making of the universe. Such concept appears not right, for the law of this universe is infinity. The universe is infinitely complete...What is beyond is included in the complete making of the universe. It is not perfect void. There is explanation for the red-shifting of all galaxies.
There is often confusion arising from the often used conflation of the terms "universe" and "observable universe". In most discussions these both refer to a "theoretically knowable universe", for want of a better or simpler phrase. The concept is explained well in the mathpages cited by Good Elf. This does not mean we cannot postulate the existence of something more than what is observable, just that we can never get any information from it.
