so you are saying the rate of expansion is increasing and expected to continue to increase. In other words the universe is exploding???? No crunch, no heat death, but another big bang????

cbd1, sorry. I was thinking of a talk given by Charles Baltay at Columbia in about 2004 at the retirement celebration for Won Yong Lee. His point (I think) went like this non-zero cosmological constant pressure outward with pressure proportional to the size of the universe. So pressure leads to larger universe leads to more pressure leads to... In other words a positive feedback loop that ends in a bang!
