Ultimate fate of the universe

The ultimate fate of the universe is a subject of study in the field of cosmology.

Vying scientific theories predict whether the life of the universe is finite or infinite.

Current understanding of matter in the universe suggests that the universe must consist of dark energy and dark matter to explain the current rate of expansion.

Mainstream models of the universe currently predict that the universe will go on expanding at an accelerating rate.
