    “I Already Knew This.”

    Oh, we all already knew that the universe is expanding. That’s old news. The new news is:

    “Instead, they reported in 1998, it was inexplicably speeding up, a conclusion that nobody would have accepted if not for the fact that both groups wound up with the same answer.”

    The first derivative of the rate of expansion isn’t negative. It’s not even zero. It’s positive! That’s news.
