Abstract:

There are many ways to see the universe. The universe encompasses everything in existence. While the universe may be vast and complex, scientists have been studying it for centuries, and our understanding of it continues to evolve over time. Many theories on the universe are yet to be proven and are still being tested today. Such theories include the Big Bang Theory, the Cosmic Inflation Theory, and the Finite Theory. The question of whether the universe is infinite or not is a large scientific debate and investigation. Regardless of whether the universe is infinite, there is still so much we have yet to discover and understand about it. However, we believe that if the universe continues to expand it should be infinite.
