One theory is that our universe is infinite in size. The observable universe universe is the portion of the universe close enough to Earth that light could travel from that point to Earth within the length of time that has elapsed since the Big Bang.

There may have been many big bangs. Gravitational force at some time has to bring all bodies together and repeat the process. Might be on the order of hundreds of billions of years.
