(UPI)   Team of experts says the rate of new star formation in the universe is only 1/30th of its peak and is in an ongoing decline. This is obvious to anyone who has gone to seen any movies lately   ( divider line

Meh, the writing was on the wall once we got past baryogenesis, what with having run up 99.99999% of the Universe's available entropy in the process. But it wasn't until the neutrinos decoupled that things really started going downhill...

Universal star production decline is a myth. Our universe is bigger, brighter, and better than any other universe in history, and it's still growing at a healthy and sustainable rate. It took just picoseconds for it to expand to billions of times its initial size, and the innovation, drive, courage, and determination embodied in the forces that inspired that initial expansion are alive and well today. Do not give in to the fear that the universe will soon begin to shrink from the nefarious effects of dark matter, spread by those who would see our universe contract back to the days where only a handful of subatomic particles existed. I for one believe that our universe will prevail, but it can't do so without faith, perseverance, and vast regions of interstellar dust being disturbed by gravitational waves causing it to clump together at a geometrically increasing rate until the fires of stellar fusion ignite in a brilliant flash. A brilliant flash of hope and promise.

Thank you.

Kingly Weevil: It's because Obama was re-elected. The Republicans would have really bolstered star production.

It's because of all these regulations. We need to eliminate some laws of physics and let the invisible hand sort it out.
