Question Date: 1999-04-30
Answer 1:

No, astronomers can only "see" so far into space but there is nothing to make them think space ends.

Answer 2:

I think, ultimately, the answer is no.In reality this is a pretty complicated issue that depends on the geometry of the universe. But in all cases I believe that there would be no "end" to space.
