As big as it needs to be. How far is up? To be serious, more or less, the universe is SO BIG that even the cleverest astronomers don't know how big it is.

Mind blowing! If you knew your mind could not handle it and you would implode that's right not explode implode bc the universe is so big it could crush you! but if you want a math magical answer imagine an 8 sideways!

Actually the universe is still being expanded. When the Big Band happened the universe began to grow at an incredible speed. It is still growing to day, at a slower rate of course.

Report as
So your saying there will be a stoping point haha? Ok if they really have proven that it's "growing" then the would have a measurement to compare that it is getting larger. If your statement is correct then what are these measurements ?
Report as
actually i heard the rate of expansion of the universe has actually been increasing... but that might be wrong
Report as
Iv heard that too. But still yet what measurements would they have to compare to prove its correct? You know like a baby to a kid you have point a to point b to measure from to from the child has grown. Right?
Report as
To answer chelsie question, to be honest there aren't any measurements but it makes sense that an object in motion stays in motion right? Quote Isaac Newton. So if nothing in space, since there is no gravity, just nothingness, then it would be safe to say that nothing can stop the growth of the universe. Because there is nothing to stop it. Correct me plz if wrong

big as the universe

Report as

No one knows how big it really is, all we know is that its very big because we can never find the end. Many people say it doesn't have an end. And many people say it does but its so big that we can't find it, if you want to know more then check out the NASA website:

If it had an end what would be on the other side?

Button size:)

Who knows, exactly? There aren't accurate words to describe its size, and even if there were, it would still probably be too much to fathom.
