The universe's accelerated expansion might be slowing down

April 05, 2024

These signals of our universe's changing speeds were spotted by the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), which is perched atop a telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory in the US state of Arizona. This was a surprise because gravity from matter -- both normal and dark -- was thought to have been slowing the universe down. But obviously something was making the universe expand at ever-faster speeds, and the name "dark energy" was given to this force. Under this model, the quickening expansion of the universe is called the "cosmological constant," which is closely linked to dark energy. "But we're also seeing some potentially interesting differences which could indicate that dark energy is evolving with time," Levi said in a statement.
