Thanks, does that then mean that if we were ever able to verify that the universe has a finite mass, it would imply that the universe must be finite in spatial extent, and therefore not perfectly flat?
Conversely if we were able to verify that the universe is flat on the largest scales, would it imply that the universe's mass is infinite?
Does Prof. Krauss' claim that the universe is flat refute Hawking's 4d closed manifold hypothesis?
