Big Bang vs Speed of Light
Asked Dec 9, 2011, 03:25 AM
I am 65 without any formal knowledge in physics or astrophysics but am fascinated by the subject. There is one thing that puzzles my and I cannot get it out of my head. In The Big Bang the universe went from zero to full size in a fraction of a second yet the laws of physics state that nothing travels faster than light. My logic tells me that the universe could only have expanded to 186,000 miles in the 1st second. Can you tell me if I have got it right?
