If the big bang explosion theory is correct, and the space expanding by the explosion of the big bang is correct.
Then yes, space has an end, however, that ''border'' is moving further and further away, making it take you longer to get to this ''end'' by
every moment that passes.
Simply put, something cannot be infinite if it is expanding or shrinking, thus it must be finite, and must have a certain shape and ''end''
If spaces current size would be infinite, then it would have no shape, and no end.
To say that space is infinitely large due to that it is everexpanding is wrong.
It means that its size will grow for all eternity, but it does not mean the size itself is infinite, the increase is. An eternal process of adding
more 9's to the size.
For those that think they are smart. "Stretching" is different from expanding in my ''use'' of words.
With expand I mean that the volume within X to Y does not increase or decrease due to the expansion of the universe.
With stretch I mean that the volume DOES decrease, as you are basically distancing matter from other matter that's contained in the ''stretch''
Would be cool if it was possible to fly to the end of the universe, to see a huge wall of explosions and flames crawling away from you.
