mystery science theater

In the spirit of asteroids and black holes...

Theorists seeking to explain the mysterious force have suggested that it could, in fact, become stronger or weaker over time — either finally tearing the universe apart in a violent event called "the big rip" or shutting down in the distant future. If the force somehow shut down, gravity would again predominate in the cosmos and the universe would collapse on itself. That version of oblivion is sometimes called "the big crunch."

Unfortunately, there are no artist depictions for either outcome, but I encourage all of you to submit any imagery you might have.
