Where does the energy carried by the gravitational wave go?
It turns out the radiated energy carried by these gravitational waves from all binary star systems eventually hit the edge of the universe.
The carried energy of the wave that hits the “boundary of the universe causes it to expand.
Therefore inflation occurs.
The acceleration of expansion in the universe is occurring
When binary systems start to decrease their orbital distance the speed at which the stars move increases.
This produces a larger amount of gravitational waves compared to the binary system before.
This statement holds until the orbital distance between the stars in the binary system become zero.
The consequence of the increased gravitational wave production is a higher rate of expansion or commonly known as the acceleration of expansion in the universe.
Gravitational waves are the source of inflation due to the gravitational radiant energy carried by them.
Evidence of these waves are very strong and numerous projects are in place to discover them such as LIGO.
Once all the stars, planets, or other space objects cease to move, or clump into one huge mass, the expansion of the universe will eventually stop because no gravitational wave will be produced.
This might lead to the Big Crunch or the Big Freeze.
However, if all objects one day become one mass, another Big Bang might occur, therefore restarting the cycle of the universe
