The universe just got more mysterious, as it continues to expand at a faster rate than anticipated, NASA has learned.

Scientists using the Hubble Space Telescope concluded that “something weird” is going on with the universe after comparing NASA's current rate of the universe's expansion to observations from after the universe was created, revealing a discrepancy between the two. The astronomers found that the universe is expanding much faster than they originally thought using the updated and more accurate data, according to Express.

 

“The cause of this discrepancy remains a mystery," NASA said Thursday. “But Hubble data, encompassing a variety of cosmic objects that serve as distance markers, support the idea that something weird is going on, possibly involving brand new physics.”:snip:

Not explode, but expand into.....well That's an interesting question. Given that there is (probably) nothing outside the universe.
