The Universe is Infinite

In these uncertain times, this phrase has been a comfort to me. I pulled Stephen Hawkings, A Brief History of Time from my shelf to check the accuracy of this statement and didn't really find an answer. But I don't care, so far as my comprehension is concerned, the Universe IS Infinite. It is easy to get wrapped up in the turmoils of every day existence or of world issues, but it is all so much larger than Earth, a humbling thought.
