The World Forgot (Ever-Expanding Universe, #3) by Martin LeichtIn this hilarious, action-packed conclusion to The Ever-Expanding Universe trilogy, teen mom Elvie Nara is on a quest across the universe to save her daughter (and maybe stop an alien race war in the process).
After dealing with killer whales, evil scientists, the return of her long-lost mother and, certainly not least of all, the challenges of breastfeeding, Elvie Nara has just about had it. And then the JinKai (along with the aforementioned estranged mom) kidnap her baby.
And before she knows it, another JinKai attack puts her on the run again, but not before discovering that Olivia was implanted with a genetic tracking device. So along with Cole, Ducky, and her dad, Elvie goes back out into space to follow the signal. There she finds evil Dr. Marsden up to some evil tricks and realizes that Mars may hold the secret to defeating her enemies once and for all. So, off to Mars she goes. Because alien race war aside, Elvie really wants to be back with her daughter. For a kid she wasn’t even sure she wanted, Olivia has come to mean the world to Elvie—and she’ll search the universe to be with her again.
How Will Our Species Survive in an Ever-Expanding Universe?
Despite an ever-increasing number of free Con-related attractions sprouting across the city, few seemed to mind spending money on a pass and then fighting the caped shoulder-to-caped shoulder crowds inside. This includes everything. Inside the exhibition hall, there was an embarrassment of pop culture riches. Then, it was ignored by all but hardcore fans of comics, movies and science fiction literature. Now, said Akito Takahashi, this is a global phenomenon. That long line was for exclusive models of Godzilla, the most popular star of the Tokyo-based film studio Toho, where Takahashi is an executive.

It might not seem like it, but the inhabitants of Earth are on the threshold of leaving the solar system. On cosmic timescales—measured in millions or even billions of years—it will be no time at all before our descendants begin to spread outward and across the Milky Way Galaxy. Unless technological progress is brought to a halt by some kind of major catastrophe, the era of our Earthly confinement is about to come to a close. Imagine that over the course of the next hundred million years or so a hyperadvanced civilization emerges from Earth—much as our early ancestors once migrated out of Africa—and expands across the entirety of the Milky Way. Futurists have long argued such beings will build structures called Dyson spheres around stars, capturing and putting to use as much of the energy released in starlight as possible. It seems entirely conceivable that million years from now every star in the Milky Way will be surrounded by a Dyson sphere, providing roughly a trillion trillion, or 10 24 times more power than human beings currently produce and consume.
The Most Serene Republic - Patternicity - And the Ever Expanding Universe (2009)
The universe was born with the Big Bang as an unimaginably hot, dense point. When the universe was just 10 of a second or so old — that is, a hundredth of a billionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second in age — it experienced an incredible burst of expansion known as inflation, in which space itself expanded faster than the speed of light. During this period, the universe doubled in size at least 90 times, going from subatomic-sized to golf-ball-sized almost instantaneously. The work that goes into understanding the expanding universe comes from a combination of theoretical physics and direct observations by astronomers. However, in some cases astronomers have not been able to see direct evidence — such as the case of gravitational waves associated with the cosmic microwave background, the leftover radiation from the Big Bang.
