The Edge of the Universe

Wow, I mean WOW.  We are treated to a view of the heavens like none before, it is a picture of the edge of the Universe, the beginning of space and time.

Reported today by the BBC

 What is at this edge of the Universe?  Is it a big surrounding mass of ultimate density? I mean, what is on the other side of that if it is there?  An astronomer type fellow once told me that space doesn’t work like that, it is curved and so there is no edge.  If you travelled uninterrupted in a straight line into the Universe you would eventually come back to where you started, similar to travelling in a straight line around the earth.

It still leaves me thinking what is the Universe sitting in? Or is it somehow a 2 dimensional place with a flat earth and magic doors!!!

The mind boggles…
