If the universe is expanding, what is it expanding into? Space? If this were so, 'space' would encompass the larger volume. True, this space is infinite and has no quantifying unit but shouldn't this just mean that it is a broader term that envelops everthing? Since the universe is expanding, does this imply that it must have some boundary (within space)?
