THE UNIVERSE IS EXPANDING FASTER THAN EXPECTED - AND ASTRONOMERS SAY SOMETHING ‘BEYOND OUR CURRENT KNOWLEDGE’ IS CAUSING IT
The universe could be expanding much faster than astronomers thought. New measurements of the Hubble Constant have revealed a discrepancy between the new number and other recent estimates, suggesting something ‘beyond our current knowledge’ may be at play. These findings could shed new light on the little-understood behaviour of dark matter and dark energy, and could even point to holes in Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
