    We don't know. It could be spherical (positive curvature), flat (zero curvature), or hyperbolic (negative curvature). It depends on the total amount of matter in the universe and the cosmological constant.

    No. Evidence (accelerating expansion of universe, Casimir effect) points to a small positive value for the cosmological constant which would indicate positive (or zero) large scale spatial curvature.

    No, it is not, and spacetime is NOT negatively curved, hyperbolic. The space time continuum is flat in 3 or possibly more spatial dimensions.

    We do NOT KNOW what the shape of the Universe is. It may be amoeba like. HOW do we get outside of the Universe to observe it with it dying, then how do we get back inside to report our observations?
