Releativity says an object cannot travel through
space faster than the speed of light in vacuo,
but that doesn't stop the sapce between objects
expanding at a rate such that the distance between
them increases faster than that speed.
SPACE itself expands ?????
Sorry but INTO WHAT would space "expand" ????
I would bet that it would expand into... more space isn't it?
This is just nonsense.
But imagine for a moment that space is "expanding" faster than light, as
proposed by this wonderful "inflation" theory.
Since no object can go faster than light, NOTHING MOVES and all objects
in the universe have negative speed:
point a point b
object x -->
Object "X" starts moving at some speed smaller than "c" to point b, say,
at 50 Km/sec. In one second object x has traveled 50 Km, but the
distance between a and b has increased by more than 300 000 Km since
space is "expanding".
This reasoning is valid FOR ANY POINT A AND B. Then, object X will NEVER
reach point b, nothing in the universe can move at all, the temperature
of the universe is below absolute zero.
At absolute zero objects do not move at all. But since space is
expanding, the speed of every object in this universe is negative (the
object is flying AWAY from all other objects in the universe)
All this is quite comic. Space is "expanding". Yeah.
And I am getting younger every day.
