Astronomers determined in 1998 that the universe is flying apart at an ever faster rate. This acceleration has smashed the popular idea of a perfectly balanced beautiful universe and started what Scientific American has proclaimed as a new revolution in cosmology. The author of this work introduces new findings and explores their astonishing implications. Was Einstein's greatest blunder - his idea of a cosmological constant - a brilliant insight after all? Is there a mysterious kind of energy that fills empty space? Must we abandon the long-cherished view of a beautiful universe?
