If scientists know how the universe is made then what will happen from that – what kind of benefit would they get from it?
Like space time is the black stuff of space and gravity related in the same way? We know that galaxies are spinning to fast to stay together. They say it is the black stuff that stops or controls them from flying apart. So does gravity and the black stuff work together, and cannot be separated?

How many large objects (stars or planets / solid or gas) have been identified in the universe, so far and are there estimates about how many more will be discovered in the next 100 years? Is it known / acknowledged that the universe is expanding continuously and that there are an infinite number of large objects?
