"If the universe is constantly expanding, will the stars at night get dimmer and further between?"

As the space-time continuum stretches, taking the galaxies further and further away from each other, the distant galaxies will appear dimmer as viewed from earth, but not anytime soon (from a human perspective of time). Think of it this way: we're here at the best possible time in cosmological history, both for life to flourish, as well as to observe the rest of the universe!

We have a spaceport project in Sheboygan, WI. Would you consider speaking to raise funds. We have one of the largest model rocket organizations in the country and competitions are held here in Sheboygan annually. I am a close aquaintence of the person in charge who has a thriving rocketry club. Anyway my question is - Demetri an astronaut,that oversees the Spaceport, has a picture of radiation I believe. The picture shows radiation emanating from a central point that NASA has found in the cosmos proving that the universe began with a bang. Where does this picture come from and what does it show from a faith perspective?

The cosmic background radiation is leftover from the Big Bang creation event. The very fact that the universe had a beginning necessitates a Beginner, or First Cause (i.e., God)! Once again, the latest science supports a growing body of evidence for a caring, careful Creator!
Oh, and I would love to come and speak at your SpacePort fundraiser!
