The expansion of space

  • #1
Does anyone know the current theory for the expansion of space?

I was thinking about this the other day. Do scientists think the universe is expanding as in extending in size? Because if it's expanding, wont everything expand with it? Including us.

The latest issue of Scientific American has a discussion of this in laymen's terms which looks really nice (i have just glanced over it at present).
Some of the more knowledgeable members at PF can provide you with more technical info.
