Resolved yes if there is essentially a consensus among physicists that the universe is infinite, and no if there is essentially a consensus that it is finite. Does *not* refer to universes outside of our own, but *does* refer to the space outside of the observable universe.

Will resolve as soon as this consensus is reached, which might be well before the closing date. Resolves N/A if there is no consensus reached by 3000-02-05.

This question is managed and resolved by Manifold.

@ProjectVictory if we find that the universe has negative spatial curvature on large scales, does that not imply it's infinite?
