Acceleration? Is the universe accelerating away from the point of the big bang? Are there any theories I might understand to explain this acceleration?
Brian Schmidt; There are no conservation laws that apply to Spacetime. If there were such laws you would be right and the accelerated expansion would be violating them. But they do not exist.
So the universe is expanding at an increasing rate. According to the law of conservation of energy this shouldn't be happening? The universe must be getting extra energy from somewhere hence Dark Energy?
To pedal a bicycle faster we have to use up more energy. The energy must be there in the first place to be used. It just means the bicycle will come to a standstill earlier than if we hadn't increased the acceleration.Can't the universe just be utilising energy what is already there/here?
Is everything in the universe moving away from the big bang in relatively straight waves?
