Space expands faster than C?

  1. Mar 14, 2006 #1
    Is it possible that space beyond our 'visible horizon' expands faster than C?
    In other words, there is a region in space about 13 billion LYs out (I think) that no telescope could ever see because its expanding away from us faster than light's speed and therefore any light emitted from this region could never reach us?

    Please no crackpot replies on your personal theories of light's speed.

    See Prevect's reply on the Can two Galaxies... thread.

    Since that thread discusses the question, this one is unnessary and I'm closiing it to reduce clutter.
