Big Rip

    .... R.I.P..... rest in peace?

    I would be interested to know how many of you accept this theory as the probable fate of our universe. For me, this is probably one of the harder ideas to swallow because even if it is true, the idea of everything ceasing to exist is hard!

    Can you possibly provide some links to what you are talking about?

    I agree completely, I find this idea extremely hard to accept.

    Fair enough the fabric of space itself is expanding, but I struggle to see how that would eventually rip apart sub-atomic particles!

    Personally, I believe we'll keep expanding until everything is so far apart we live in a completely useless universe! haha.
