You got that wrong, the paradox you mention was more to do with a static universe.
Since our universe is all that there is (that is after all the definition of universe), it must then extend forever - yet it is still expanding!
Hi Brain Dwarf, I don't agree with your reasoning (in your statement): 'because the universe is all there is...then it must be infinite'. Professor Brian Cox touched on the subject of 'Oblers Paradox' during his astronomy program this week. (BBC Stargazing Live, Pt1). He seems to believe (as I do) that the universe is not infinite.

I thought Deuterium's comment about 'red shifted light' was very interesting though.

Happy New Year!
