Hey all, I was reading a webpage which I found rather confusing: http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2015/06/todays-galaxy-insight-the-lonely-galaxies.html The problem I found with this is that the guy (who is a famous theoretical physicist) is stating that because the objects will be travelling FTL we will lose sight of them, forever. However this would only make sense if the universe expanded intuitively, if it did, we should not be able to see the CMB! To my understanding, because light has such incredibly long travel times on scales as large the visible universe the pictures we look at are not things, say, twelve billion ly away, they're pictures of EM waves that have travelled for twelve billion ly across an expanding universe, because the actual objects are receding away, the light is red-shifted. To add to this, matter actually gets more packed together as you look back in cosmic time. How then, can the entire universe dissipate away and leave no trace of itself after such a short time in cosmic terms? Am I missing out on something? Did I misinterpret the statement? Or am I right, if this is the case; why would a theoretical physicist tell a bit of a lie just to push an idea that we live in a special time?
