Is the entire universe finite or infinite; does it have a b o u n d a r y or is it unbounded; will it last for a finite time or will it live forever? These are asyet-unsettled issues, but astronomers are poised to unravel these wondrous mysteries.

The Very Large and the Very Small 33 That something was seriously amiss with classical ideas was becoming ever more evident to a number of theoretical physicists in Europe around the beginning of the 20th century — Lorentz in Holland, Planck and Hilbert in Germany, Poincare in France, Fitzgerald in Ireland, and, of course, Einstein in Switzerland and Germany.

It is forever falling toward the E a r t h but not reaching it because of its tangential motion. T h e tangential motion must have originated in the distant past during the formation of the solar system. 21 Because of the universal expansion the two galaxies are moving away from each other even as light from one to the other is in transit. 22 This paragraph points out a paradox having to do with the fact that galaxies, though too distant to have ever been in the same causally connected environment in the past, are nevertheless similar.
