What does the word "ever" mean in this context?

If you were to head out into the cosmos, traveling ever farther, would you find that space goes on indefinitely, or that it abruptly ends?

Does it mean something like "always"?

Yup, you've got it right. "Traveling ever farther" could be rephrased as always traveling farther or continually traveling farther or any number of similar phrases.

Traveling ever farther is much more poetic though, which is likely why it was written that way.
