How fast is the universe expanding? I have heard it is near light speed. If this is the case does it throw a monkey wrench into Einstiens theorys? What I am really asking is if the earth is acctually moveing at near lightspeed say this . is earth. and this 0 is the sun, also say that the univers is expanding this way <- Would not light move faster with the earth in this position .0 than with it in this position 0. ?
