Scientists have discovered that the universe will probably continue to expand forever.
Nasa researchers using a 'galactic lens' have revealed it will eventually become a cold, deserted wasteland.
The astronomers used the Hubble Space Telescope to work out the amount of mysterious 'dark energy' present in the cosmos.
The study looked at what the energy, which is continuing to push the universe apart, is made of.
Using the 'huge magnifying lens' to calculate the amount of dark energy present in space, the scientists concluded the distribution of the unexplained force meant the universe would probably never stop expanding.
Scientists used Hubble to examine how light from stars became distorted in and around a huge cluster of galaxies known as Abell 1689.
