There is purported to be an "antigravity" propelled by the vacuum energy of space. This accounts for the accelerative repulsion between distant galaxies, and an eventual "heat death" of the universe. The "cosmological constant" introduced ~1920 by Einstein was more wonder than blunder, as it now suggests one possible mathematical model for this phenomenon.
