What Happens at the Edge of the Universe?

The cosmic even horizon of the universe is closer to us than the particle horizon. Space Time's Cosmology playlist tackles this and other complex concepts about the universe. The video discusses how the scientists define the edge of the universe and what we know and don't know about it. The video incorporates relativity as well as other—so far less proven—theories.
