johan01 Posted January 20, 2009 Share Posted January 20, 2009 Hi All its been a while since i thought about this so i need some insight.Here goes. If the furthest galaxies are receeding at nearly the speed of light, then for them we are receeding at the same speed. True or false? So then every body in space is actually moving APART " close to the speed of light " relative to any other body , PROVIDED IT IS FAR FAR AWAY" For me its strange that , this law " hubble's law " , that implies dark matter/energy, has no inverse law or observations. Why are there no galaxies moving toward each other at close to the speed of light. " In our Local near proximity" or even "far proximity" for that matter. Or has this been observed , if so how fast are they approching eachother at. Just another stupid thought. Further more , are all galaxies , say 14 billion light years from our galaxy , moving away from US at the same speed , how constant is this recession. Are all galaxies at 7 billion light years away also moving away from us at a constant velocity. how accurate are all these redshift measurments. Could gravitational lensing and "tired light theories " not play a part. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
