Big rip

  1. Apr 7, 2003 #1
    What exactly will happen if the big rip occurs. I understand that all matter will be torn apart. But I still don't think that I fully understand. What will happen to the matter after it is ripped apart. It can't just disappear can it.

    Well, matter is basically energy. It makes sense that if you tear it up until you can tear it up no more, all you will end up with is just energy.
