If true no new stars will be found, however if the Universe is a MultiVerse, then new objects will come into view. I would lean more in the Multiverse/Multi Little Bang concepts or ripple as i see it.
Expanding at a faster rate forever is unlikely.If we were shrinking, it would seem as if everything else was expanding at a faster rate. Just another idea. Perhaps silly, but it is the other side of the coin.
The law of entropy is in my view the most important law of the universe. If that is so and because entropy has to follow its course, there is no stopping it from going to its ultimate limits and the universe will expand forever. We have not yet been able to say exactly how the universe originated. but I suspect if we do know how that happened we would then know why the universe cannot recontract. There is also the possibility there is an antigravitational reality around the universe which could be the reason why our expansion is accelerating.
