Re: “Good-bye Mr. CHIPS

Herwitz states,"The space between solar systems isn't pure vacuum, but is filled with low-density gas drifting in a bubble around each star, superheated to about a million degrees Kelvin and emitting an extreme range of ultraviolet radiation. "
Is this part of the "dark energy" that is accelerating all mass in the universe outward? It doesn't appear that is so. But, if so, there must be still a question as to how the acceleration exists as such gas would have a finite momentum and ultimate declining velocity of all mass, not acceleration. Is there an eventual finite amount of mass and energy in what we claim is in the universe? Acceleration forever spells a final end to the universe, an end to light and energy spread out so thin that Absolute Zero, zero degrees Kelvin, or infinately close to zero would occur. Could another Einstein, Hawking or Newton find another physical factor or simple formula that explains the acceleration? It think so. It makes me think we should expect some surprises that such an end is not an end, that nature recycles itself somehow after "infinite" expansion. Or there may be something on the "other side" we might find. I'm 63 and can't wait for that to happen.
