    The big bang ocurred with the initial expansion and has continued to this day. What was the force that caused the big bang - don't know.

    In general the distance between 2 stars is not increasing. The distance between galaxies in close proximity (tens of millions of ly) is not even increasing. The distance between far distant galaxies is always increasing.

    Not for the 'normal' expansion, just a continuation of the original expansion. However, recent measurements indicate that the expansion rate is increasing. At present it is not known why this is happening, the acceleration is assumed to require some sort of energy, and this energy has been given the name dark energy.

    I'm glad something in my explanation made sense to you, and I am also very pleasantly surprised to see somebody willing to consider views that may have been unfamiliar before. It is very rare to see somebody turn around like that here.

    So, space is expanding due to the inertia-of-space .
    I think it is still mystery .

    OK .

    Why this is happenning ? Distance between two stars or galaxies in close proximity is not increasing but distance between far distant galaxies is increasing ?

    If the expansion rate is increasing , that means there is some force which is acting on the space or there is a repelling force which is increasing the distance of distant galaxies .

    Whether it is attractive force or repelling force ; some energy is required .

    The lowering of a force potential it typically followed by the release of energy. If lower the EM force a photon is released. If we lower the nuclear force energy is released, etc. If gravity is a force, it should release energy when the potential of gravity lowers.

    If gravity does not have an output when potential lowers it is not a force like the other three forces. It is missing a common feature. This may be why we can't seem to integrate gravity properly.

    If we look at the EM force when the potential is lowered and energy is given off, this energy can cause EM potential to increase, elsewhere. If gravity is a force the lowering of potential will release energy, which could cause an increase in gravitational potential, elsewhere. It will create what appears to be an anti-gravity affect that we attribute to dark energy. This is dark energy.

    I believe that gravity does give off energy when gravity lowers potential. This can be observed in bulk mass rotations created by gravity. Conceptually, a rotation of a gas cloud being influenced by gravity, causes the perimeter material to gain energy in a way that also results in the slowing down of its fall into gravity.

    If we scale up to all the stars in a galaxies, the output will create a galactic spiral as well as an output into space, which creates a bulk situation that will appear to be repulsive to gravity. An acceleration of the expansion of space, only requires the amount of gravity collapse in all the galaxies, increasing with time, so the energy output increases. Are there more stars today than 1 billion years ago? If so, one would expect the gravitation energy output to increase.
