If we lived a couple of million/billion years in the future (I forgot the actual figure), we wouldn't be able to see even the nearest galaxies, much less the rest of the universe, based on accelerating expansion rates and what not.

We would see nothing but an immense void and have no way to tell that all this other stuff is out there.


Really? I don't see how this is true. The light from these other galaxies reaches us now, and it's going to continue reaching us as they move further and further away. I read somewhere else that we'll see more and more out there as the light from more distant galaxies finally reaches us.

This .gif awes me more than any description of God has ever been able to do.

But surely it is something God did?

I think the argument is that the universe will eventually be expanding faster than the speed of light. At that point, it will be impossible to detect light from other stars/galaxies.

Yup, this pretty much. It's possible due to general relativity.

Somehow managed to post a blank message. Anyways, what I was going to say is that .gifs like this one are part of the reason I've decided to study Astronomy.

I see... interesting.

How didn't I see this topic earlier? I share this sentiment so hard. I want to be a ghost capable of ftl travel and some kind of omni-sensory array.
