Stick with me through some figures......
11,160,000 miles, imagine eleven million miles then tack on 160 thousand for good measure. So while we are going sixty miles in one hour, light is traveling 669 million, 600 thousand miles.
It is roughly 92 million miles to the sun. It takes less than ten minutes for light to get to earth from the sun. If you could drive a car to the sun it would take you seven years 24/7 at 60mph to get there. So light is pretty fast.
I said all that to say this, Using the Hubbell telescope, scientists have found another something in space that is only 28 million light years away. In other words the light the scientists see now started this way 28 million years ago.
Now folks we ain’t never going there. I guess it is nice to know those facts, but even if it was headed this way to eat up the world, It is going to take it 28 million years to get here, shoot, even Lucy won’t live that long. (That’s my attempt at humor now Luce!) LOL
Just thought you would like to know.
Thanks for coming by the log.
