Just watched the 'How Big is the Universe?' TV program and it indicated that the universe is believed to be infinite in size. They used an approach involving measuring the internal angles of triangles. Or something like that anyway.
But hang on, the Universe has a known starting time and size followed by a finite time expanding at a finite speed. So surely, by definition, it cannot be infinite? I can accept it is honking big but by definition it cannot be infinite. Are they misleading me?
