losfomot Posted October 25, 2010 Share Posted October 25, 2010 (edited) We are only able to see so much of the universe. Can we alter this?... Say we built a rocket telescope and fired it directly toward a specific area of space... say the hubble deep field area. We get this rocket going about .99c and then let it coast for a day or a week... however long it takes to get a good exposure. Then we turn the rocket around and have a look at the photo... what would we see? Would we see farther than the observable universe we experience on Earth? (since distance has contracted in the direction of travel) Would red-shifting be (to some degree) reversed by our velocity toward the light we are collecting?
