Kanta ,

We then, let
me ask you a
question.
Does the
universe have
an edge?
YANK!
Where Is the Universe Going? 199
What do you
mean when you
say “an edge”?
I've heard that the
universe was born
with the big bang and
continues to expand
even now.
So it must have
an edge, right?
In other words,
what is haening at
the furthest points
of space, which are
stretching out?
The expansion of the
universe is a phenomenon
like no other. There is no
“edge” in the sense that
you are thinking of.
The universe
is not like a
pie crust that
gets bier
at the edges
as you ro
itout.
But...
200 Chapter 4 What Is It Like at the Edge of the Universe?
In a certain sense,
the edge of the
universe is right
here. It’s just
ostage, where
you can’t s it.
Huh?
It’s
here?
That's prey
hard to fathom.
Yes it is. however,
verifying this with
today's scientific
tls is...
...impoible. I am
teibly soy.
Don't woy
about it!

Bring me
my ship!
Come on!
Th-this is...
This spaceship was
prepared so that
Kaguya-hime could
return to her home
world!
I'm a lowly
stagehand...
You're a we-
informed, weird-
lking peasant!
You said...
The edge of
the universe is
right here, just
ostage.
