So what you mean to tell us is outside the "known universe" is some brick wall that surrounds the universe in its entirety? Can you even fathom the size of the known universe? Light travels at the speed of roughly 186,000 miles in ONE second. Multiply that by the 31,449,600 seconds in a year. That distance is called a light-year. Mutiply that by the billions of light-years away of stars that we have seen. And there is some kinda wall that all the expanding matter of the universe is going to crashing into? Whatever.
