I know that space is expanding, so the further away you go from my location, the faster space is expanding, asymptomatically approaching the speed of light. I also know that as relative velocities approach the speed of light, the length of space contracts. From this I come up with a limit for the diameter of the universe, relative only to the rate of expansion and the universe's age. Is this a correct way to look at the universe on the grandest scale or am I missing something important?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
