I realize this is just a little off the topic of long range hunting but I can't help myself. Lots of people here with real scientific minds so I'm gunna go ahead and try to start something up. I do not intend for this to be a religious debate or anything like that. No offence intended. So, anyway I'm a bit of a science channel watcher and have always been amaized by the big bang and other stuff surounding it. A lightyear is a measure of distance - the distance light will travel in one year. now they are able to see stars that are estimated to be about almost 14 billion light years away... these same scientists also estimate that the universe is only about 14 billion years old. Here is the question that has been eating at me since I first heard these findings: How are we are able to see so far away. In order to see that far, we or they had to have either traveled much faster than the speed of light for a fair amount of time inorder to get that far apart. The universe is still expanding but not anything close to the speed of light. Or am I missing something here??? I'm getting a headach thinking about it Sorry if this isn't the kind of stuff you guys talk about, but I couldn't help myself lol! Later, Mark.
