Description:

This site from the University of Oregon’s Physics Department provides a description of Olbers’ Paradox which asks why the night sky is dark. The site presents diagrams and an explanation for why a static infinite universe would have a brightly illuminated night sky. It also contains rationale for why this is not so, supporting calculations, and conclusions that can be drawn about the Universe.
