According to cosmological evidence, the Universe is dominated by an unknown type of energy with characteristics very different from those of ordinary matter. Its unusual physical properties cause an acceleration of the expansion of the Universe that contradicts the attractive character that gravity normally has. This new phenomenon has very clear implications for the future and destiny of the Universe. In addition, it is possible that the nature of this energy is linked to the very foundations of physics.
