Our universe apparently has a positive cosmological constant so it will look more and more like de Sitter spacetime, expanding at at exponentially increasing rate.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So eventually it seems that subatomic spacetime would be affected by this. Eventually even something a Planck distance away would be outside a particle's event horizon.

I wonder if this would tear the Higgs mechanism to pieces …
