It is valid maybe. But considering the angles, it's expectant. I was typing live as I thought. Sorry.

wow, i really am appalled at the lack of knowledge found in this thread...
anyway, do you guys think they make spaceships larger than GALAXIES??? think about it!

Nice. Now we see how infinite the space is. Yet it is impossible for space to be infinite. If there was a big bang and it took place some billion years ago, it means there was a beginning point. If, in that explosion the matter was scattered out, so it means that having a maximal velocity of speed of light the last remains of matter should be in vicinity of 14bn light years. yet, I declare even that is impossible. According to Einstein an object that has mass if travelling close to speed of light, its mass also increases close to infinity. I guess that, if universe is expanding the furthest objects should travel away even faster as they are tied less gravitationally to the object behind them. In an explsion if 2 objects travel nearby their vectors of direction will be slightly different because explosion starts from a point. In such an explosion, like the big bang 2 objects travelling nearby and having gravitational fields ,yet different direction vectors ,must be hampering each other- meaning reducing their speed. So those objects that trvael further and are more scattered will have less gravitational effects of the objects nearby. This is just my guess.
