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

First, the universe is not expanding at less than the speed of light, there are some stars presently moving away from us at a speed faster than the speed of light (these are all objects that are 14 billion light years away and further).

Second, the edge of the observable universe is 46 billion light years away.
