Expanding Universe synonyms
Part of speech:
A cosmological model in which the early universe undergoes a period of exponentially rapid expansion, resulting in the high degree of homogeneity of matter observed in the present-day universe.
Model of the universe in which the curvature of space is flat or curved away from itself, entailing that the size of the universe is infinite. According to this model, gravity between objects is not able to stop or reverse the expansion of the universe, thus objects continue to move farther and farther apart as space moves outward. An object moving in a straight line in an open universe would never return to its starting point. According to current cosmological theories, the universe is open if it is insufficiently dense. Such a universe will never end, but will eventually become very cold and dark because stars gradually lose all of their energy.
A model of a closed universe in which the expansion of the universe slows and reverses, thereby causing a collapse into a singularity, which then expands into a new universe, repeating the cycle. Such a model implies that our universe is just one of a long line of universes. Scientists have not been able to develop a theory of how a collapsed universe could expand into a new one.
