Who cares. We'll never even be able to even get to the end of our own solar system.

Ever.

So why does it matter whats at the end of the universe?

Your imagination, it sucks

Also we already have a spacecraft outside of the heliopause, which is the furthest limit of our solar system, so wut?

I can't believe this is coming from someone with a username like The Shroom420.

I think it means that the content within the universe is floating farther. I imagine the universe to just be an endless black vacuum. Say that everything in the universe is clustered right now in one area. Well it's drifting apart very slowly.

My other theory is this:

Well, I know this one guy came on Colbert Report and basically said that nothing is something. So the universe is expanding into something, because nothing is indeed something.

Yeah I still don't know what the hell it means :\

That is one way I always try to explain it, and it seems to help people understand.

Think of it like this.

I heard the universe is expanding but the acceleration is negative ..

While we're being pedants, I have no proof that anyone else actually exists

Although what evidence is sufficient to prove something is strongly area-dependent, and although there's usually no absolute threshold of sufficiency at which evidence becomes proof, I would consider the observational evidence of those around us to be sufficient 'proof' that others exist.

Why would you assume that it has to expand into something?

1) Nah, that one doesn't hold up because we get background radiation fro the big bang when we look out suggesting there is an "edge" of stuff meaning there is an "edge" where the expansion is "interacting" with the edge of space-time, so not simply expanding into nothing.

Second theory is kind of like string theory. Multidimensional silliness.

"Five sigma" is the generally accepted threshold/
