Something is not quite right jn the universe: A super-precise measurement of one of the fundamental cosmic constants suggests it's expanding faster now than it was in its early years.

In the first instants of the Big Bang, the speed of light was exceeded and the universe doubled in size dozens of times in a of a fraction of a second. The expansion is continuing, and doing so where we expected it to slow down.

As long as what we think of the universe keeps changing as we keep learning, I'll keep myself open to ideas. Besides, if I don't put them out there, how will anyone know if one day I might not be wrong? I pay more attention to the ideas of cosmologists and those far more knowledgeable, but just because they know more than I do doesn't automatically invalidate my ideas. I may be wrong, but I'm proud of the effort.

In any case, it was a thought, remember?
