is that we cannot see the edge of the universe because the universe is still too young. As we look out in space and back in time, given the finite velocity of light, we encounter the first light of the big bang before reaching the edge of the universe.

Even when the universe is older, or old enough, we will see only the edge of out visible universe because distant parts are expanding faster than the speed of light, and never see the edge of our physical universe. Indeed, we do not even know if there is an edge.
