What Happens To Us As The Universe Expands?

You're probably already well aware that the universe is expanding; that big, black void up there is getting bigger with each passing second. But what's happening to us in the meantime? Are we getting embiggened? Or being ripped apart at the seams? Fortunately neither.

As MinutePhysics explains, the cosmic expansion of space is just one of the many, many forces that toy with us as we float through the abyss. While other galaxies may be drifting away from each other, gravity and electromagnetism are helping to keep everything peachy keen here on Earth. But if you find that you are somehow expanding regardless, maybe it's time to cut back on the junk food.
