How fast is the universe expanding at the farthest edge we can see?
I surmise that the rate is uniform now, from there to here..
The average expansion rate of the universe is the Hubble
and the age of our universe is
13.77 billion years, nearly..
For making it relatively, easier to understand, this can be
(UNIT DISTANCE)/(UNIT DISTANCE/second
= 1 km /1 km / 1 second
= (1 AU / 1 AU / `second#
= 1 parsec / 1 parsec /second
= Hubble constant
= 71 km / s / megaparsec ....
Choosing befitting units,
Hubble constant X Age = 1.
The farthest globular cluster is surmised to be at a distance of
about 13.77 billion light years .
So, the age of our universe is surmised to be about this
time of 13.77 billion years, taken by light from the source, to reach
Perhaps, the rate of expansion was very much faster when our
universe was ( in the mathematical sense of epsilon) incredibly
small, at its center, about 13.77 billion years ago..
I surmise that the rate is uniform now.
We can derive, the Hubble constant
from the the age 13.77 billion years and vice versa. .
See how this is done.
The reciprocal of age
= 1/(13..77 billion years)
1 mega parsec/ 1 mega parsec
= 3.0857 X
= 1/age , in km/mega parsec / sec is
= (3.0857 X
