Cosmological Event Horizon during Inflation

  1. Mar 16, 2006 #1
    The newly release WMAP data supports the Inflation model that the universe expanded from subatomic scales to Astronomic scales in a fraction of a second. If so, then what would have been the distance from each point where space would have been expanding at the speed of light, approximately? Thanks.

    Well, when they say that the cosmos expanded from subatomic scales to astronomical scale, I guess that mean you can start from practically zero to, what, say 300,000 lightyears in, what, 1 second at most? Or are there other upper bounds on this?
