## Main Question or Discussion Point

Please let me know if this statement is correct, too vague, or blatantly wrong. I am doing research for an article I am writing, but am not a physicist, nor have I ever taken any physics instruction. If you have suggestions to fix it, please let me know! Thanks!

Einstein thought the initial predictions made by his general theory of relativity about the fate of the universe were wrong, so he introduced a fudge factor that accounted for the expansion of the universe. That fudge factor turned out to be correct, the representation of a yet unseen force (dark energy) that can be observed only indirectly and which is causing the universe to expand ever more rapidly into oblivion.
