The Universe Will Expand Forever

According to NASA. 

Click here to read about the experiment confirming the Casimir effect which indicates the presence of "dark energy" causing the universe to expand forever.  Money quote:  “This vast and mysterious dark energy appears to gravitationally repel all matter and hence will likely cause the universe to expand forever.”

I find that very good news. The Universe is not a zero sum game afterall. If the universe is expanding then there is no fixed amount of energy or other "stuff" that must be divided/shared/hoarded, etc.   As above, so below, it is said.  This is very good news.
