Brainlet here. I was reading the Wikipedia article on The Size of the Universe and it said the size is unknown, and possibly infinite.My question is: how could the size be infinite? Isn’t it generally accepted that the Big Bang contained/created and finite amount of matter which continues to expand outward? I mean, I understanding how the space or the nothingness could be infinite, but the amount of galaxies would have to be finite regardless, right?
>>10800453when they say that during inflation the universe grew from something smaller than a proton to something about the size of a grapefruit, that always means just the speck that became the Observable Universe.For all anybody knows the total could have been infinite to begin with.
