I read this recently, but did not understand how one calculates this, since I'm used to:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Distance = Recessional Velociy / Hubble's Constant

= Beta x C / Hubble's Constant

ALSO SEE ATTACHMENT

I thought that as Z approaches infinity, Recessional Velociy approaches C. But clearly this cannot be true if a Red Shift of z =1.47 implies superluminal recessional velocity. Where are I going wrong?

Thanks much.

# Redshift > 1.46 means Recessional Velocity over C?
