Time Lapse Simulations of Traveling Through Space

  1. Sep 28, 2014 #1
    In the Hubble Ultra Deep Field photograph, they show a 3D simulation of traveling through it. (Cue to about 2:00 minutes.)

    Obviously the simulation is traveling through that field faster than the speed of light. What would that field actually look like while traveling near the speed of light? What would the Andromeda galaxy look like if you were approaching it near the speed of light?

    Here some simulations of the visual effects:
