I have a question. I'm not even sure that it makes sense or is a worthy question, so please bear with me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there a geometry written for the current (accepted) view of the universe? It seems there must be a geometry that deals with curved space and other such features, but I have never heard of one. For a while people were just sort-of writing geometries--just making up systems that worked whether they had been seen or not, right? It seems crazy that someone could (or would) write one that worked for our universe without knowing its details. Did someone construct one to the universe in modern times? Or have we just never needed a complete geometry? It seems we must be usingsomegeometry, but I don't know what it is.

Thanks for any insight. (I realize my question was probably worded badly and therefore partially incoherent.)
