I have heard that hawking thinks that space is contracting or will be contracting. my question is how do you make infinity smaller? no matter what number you go to from infinity it would still be infinitely smaller than infinity correct? so this would only work in a finite universe which most people have discredited believing it to be impossible. so is hawking trying to say that the universe is finite? :uhh:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
