Misconceptions About the Universe

by Kenny Hoeschen

Immediately following the Big Bang, the universe went through a period of rapid expansion referred to as “inflation.” During that time, parts of the universe were moving away faster than the speed of light. But, as Veritasium explains, things are still moving away faster than the speed of light. And, no, that doesn’t violate Einstein’s theory of relativity. But, we can still see some objects that are moving away from us faster than the speed of light.

Thankfully, Veritasium explains this well, so pay attention and don’t come to us with questions.
