    Space is expanding, per observations, yes. The is no "containment".

    Finite but unbounded means it CAN expand, but not necessarily INTO some thing. That something is UNKNOWN, assuming it exists. It may NOT exist.

    The Universe is Uncontained, as is Space

    A quantum void is still something, it's empty space. The containment is gravity, it's expanding into the vacuum of the quantum void, and the only thing containing it is the gravity which all energy has in it. We don't know how gravity works.

      We are all contained the same way into a structured mass.

    I don't think the universe has a containment, but space itself is expanding. The distance between two points is increasing. The red shift of light from distant galaxies proves this.

    I've said it before- the universe is expanding INTO something. Otherwise it couldn't expand!

      Continuing to say it just means you still don't understand.

    Our knowledge of the universe is expanding. However, it is so vast, it seems to be limitless.

    We don't know about the containment itself - if there is one - but, the visible universe seems to be expanding...
