Astronomers believe that the universe is a sphere

Астрономы считают, что Вселенная - это сфера

If this is true, perhaps, that the universe will one day die, curled up one point.

According to a new study published in the journal Nature Astronomy, the data of the cosmic microwave background radiation remaining from the Big Bang and the observed Planck space Observatory indicate that the universe could be “curved” similar to an expanding balloon, not flat.

Another implication of this study lies in the fact that the universe is closed, which contradicts years of conventional knowledge and previous research. Thus, it is a sphere.

“The assumption of a flat Universe may mask the cosmological crisis, when disparate observed properties of the Universe seem to be mutually incompatible. However, the consideration of space as the sphere changes the view of these properties and provides new opportunities for understanding,” say the authors.
