- A light year is the distance that light travels in one year.
- Theoretically, nothing can travel faster than light.
- The Universe is approximately 13.75 Billion years old.
- The Universe is approximately 156 Billion light years in size.
Excuse me for being ignorant and stupid but how can matter have traveled more than ten times farther than the age of the Universe would suggest it could?
Correction: The radius (distance from the center to the edge) of the Universe is 76.5 Billion light years (or thereabouts). Still... that's 5.564 times the size it should be.
