Re: Question about how Hubble can see objects from soon after the Big

Remember Galaxies are moving as well. So as the universe expands the distance between galaxies can do so as well. So 12 billion or so years ago galaxy and galaxy B might have been sperated by a few hundred thousands light years. Whilst today they are sperated by billions of light years.
