Dark energy is space

  1. Jul 12, 2004 #1
    If I double the size of a classical,non-quantum mechanical vacuum,
    I double the volume of space and its density stays constant at zero
    kg/ m ^3.As the amount of dark energy in the universe increases the volume of space increases and the density stays constant.Is dark energy space?

    Hi kurious;

    I don't think all space is dark energy. But, I think all dark energy is space.

    Just my thoughts.
