i dont know if i can explain what it is i dont know....you know?
but here goes
i read recently that it has been determined that the milky way was among the first galaxies to form. now astronomers look at objects very far away and say that galaxy is 13 or 14 billion lys away. if the milky way was formed at about the same time and the universe was a good bit smaller at that time, then that galaxy was alot closer then 13 or 14 billion lys. would not the light from 13 or 14 billion years ago have already passed us by? in other words....how can you see light 13 or 14 billion light years ago if when that light turned on the universe was just a few million lys accross?
does that make sense?
