    That's a good article. I've often wondered about this very same problem, that of the misconceptions in modern literature about the expansion of space.

    I believe what one says in these situations is LOL

    However someone else at this board had a very good sig
    recently which was an original adaptation of the famous
    saying of Isaac Newton about why he believed he had seen
    further than the rest of us. I will get it and be back.

    Yeah, the Tammy Davis paper is pretty good. It will be useful
    to a lot of people (not just for getting her her PhD)
