I have just read slate.com which debunks string theory. What I am about to say will probably display my ignorance and lack of education however I am trying to understand QT. Here goes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have read the universe is expanding. I, in my elementary way, understand QT is a condition where you may measure where an electron is fired, or you may determine where it impacts, but you cannot do both. I know this is just a small part of the 3rd law of TD, however if what I say is true, has anyone ever taken into account the speed of earth through space or put another way has anyone ever taken into account the expansion rate of the universe?

I would think if an electron travels at the speed of light, it may appear to an observer, to be actually traveling faster than light. Therefore if we know the expansion rate we could take that into account and determine not only where the electron came from but where it impacted. I have had this question for many years and thought I would ask. If I am negatively impacting your forum, no one will answer and I will politely go away. Sincerely, I am truly interested. Thanks.
