A group is now claiming that the universe is curved. I'm holding out until I see the evidence.

https://www.sciencea...<br /> <br /> This doesn't look like good evidence to me. Gravity, and therefore gravitational lensing, is a local phenomenon. Ascribing curvature to the entire universe based on local phenomena is a non sequitur.

Thinking a thing because you can is the worst possible excuse for pursuing a line of research.

I agree with the thinking up stuff and expecting it to be as your inner voice tells you is questionable, but it certainly is not research.

Tossing a little research onto this subject, the planet earth is oval not round because of gravitational effects on a spinning object and the moon's influence.
The galaxy is spinning so it could be subject to expanding top and bottom as well as outward, gravity or no gravity?
Magnetic fields should fluctuate causing displacement when bodies are in motion and stars die. Who is to say that after 13.5 billion years that this has not come to pass?

I'm sure there are a few inhabitants of the moon who have access to this information, we will just have to wait and see.

Our poor Earth is doomed as it is.

Nothing we can do about his ifs, maybes, and it might etc, may as well party while we can!
