http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/1996/01/image/a Now this should make for an entertaining conversation on a rainy weekend. What is the plausibility that NASA has really found the beginning of time? That photograph is of the area of space at the extreme range of the HST. So what is past that place? Is it the galaxies which existed before the beginning of time? Now there's a paradox for you! Are they saying that they found the edge of the universe? And if not, how can they say they found the beginning of time? Clearly, someone is being disengenuous, or they're just plain stupid. I wonder which it is? So that this is not just an opportunity to laugh at the ineptitude of the highly educated cosmologists at NASA in presenting their photgraphic evidence of what the HST sees, there is a very real topic in this which deserves discussion. Is light infinite, or does it have an active cycle after which it becomes dormant? Or we could stretch the topic somewhat and discuss whether or not it is possible to see back in time.
