Accelerating expansion

  1. Dec 30, 2009 #1
    If vacuum energy accelerates the expansion rate of the universe and that produces a larger universe with more vacuum energy to accelerate the expansion is there a positive feedback loop here? Does the expansion rate grow exponentially? Do we get another big bang? Is it a big bang in it's inflationary period? If it stops the same way our inflationary period stopped (unknown) will that be the birth of the next universe?
