Info on the Big Crunch that could end the Universe

“The work relies on a previous paper by the pair, which tackled the question of why observations of the size of the cosmological constant are wildly out of keeping with modeled results. Their solution is vacuum energy sequestering, an idea they describe as a “very simple reformulation of General Relativity” where the energy that exists everywhere (vacuum energy density) in the universe is prevented from contributing to the curvature of the universe, and therefore influencing gravity. The work makes the cosmological constant equal to the average of all the matter energy density in the universe that has, or will, exist.”
