Einstein’s Biggest Blunder? The Case For Cosmic “Antigravity”

Recently, observations of very distant exploding stars have provided evidence that the expansion of the Universe is speeding up with time, rather than slowing down as expected. This discovery resurrects the idea of a long-range "antigravity" effect in the Universe, first proposed by Albert Einstein and later renounced as his "biggest blunder." This was voted the "Science Breakthrough of 1998" by Science magazine, and was the cover story in the 25 June 2001 issue of TIME magazine.
