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.

What containment??do you know something I don't?

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!

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...
