The reality of infinity

There has been a lot of talk in the media just lately about the concept of infinity. If something is infinite it is endless. This concept is especially important when discussing the size of the universe. It is simply not known how large our universe is. There is only so far that we can see, even with the strongest telescopes.  The unseeable bit is called the great unknown. Some scientists are beginning to think that there is a possibility that the universe may be infinite. It may go on for ever.
