Space expansion

  1. Oct 14, 2009 #1
    With an Alcubierre drive..

    Let's say there is point a and point b that are one
    lightyear apart. Would there be

    A: A limit to how fast the space between a and b could contract....ie
    the warping of space can go no faster than c. But after the
    contraction of space the ship could cross from a to b faster than
    light for an unaltered distance.

    Basically it would take as long or longer to construct the path than it would to simply cross the distance.

    or B: No limit

    is there a limit to the speed at which a universe (and/or space) can expand or contract in size?
