comment What is that void that the universe is growing into?
If someone is up to speed on the current state of "we really don't know" -ness, please feel free to add that as an answer.

comment If NASA is going to capture an asteroid with a spacecraft, wouldn't a UFO be able to manuever a celestial body?
This question appears to be off-topic because it it not about the subject of astronomy as defined in the Help Center

comment Class presentation on the Sun, ideas?
@Sawarnik chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/815/the-observatory. It's a bit quiet because this is still a new site.

comment Class presentation on the Sun, ideas?
Another way to say this is that this site is designed to create a work of reference to answer questions about the field of astronomy. We'd love to help, but a more appropriate place for your discussion is perhaps in our chat room, or even better, a threaded discussion forum that supports more generalized discussion. And, yes... good luck!

comment How Far Are We From the Edge of the Universe?
If it helps, this is really just a corollary to this question: Where is the center of the universe?

comment Will new stars stop forming at some point of time?
@called2voyage Brian Cox did a nice show on this in his "Wonders of the Universe" series, but if I recall, he got a bit poetic in specifying the time frames involved. Basically a really really really long time.
