Who discovered Dark Energy and evidence for it?
Einstein discovered dark energy. Einstien had a theory called "Cosmological Constant" which states that empty space could still havebits own energy.
Dark Energy and Dark Matter
What are some current experiments?
Some recent studies show that the Big Bang occurred about 13.7 billion years ago. The universe has been expanding since the moment of the Big Bang and it is going to collapse. it is called the Big Crunch.
The End
What do they tell us about the future of the universe?
The universe is slowly dying it ionly producing half as much energy as it used to. This drop in energy could cause a mini ice age on Earth
