question about expansion. . .


ok, we know the universe is expanding

you may not like it
neil degrasse tyson might favor it
einstein didn't like it then changed his mind
god may not like it but so what
it's a done deal

more specifically, space itself is expanding, faster and faster
(it doesn't seem subject to the prohibition against anything going faster than light)

galaxies are pulling away from each other
at some point in the future they will be invisible to each other

question: is space within our galaxy expanding? are milky way stars moving away from each other?
if yes, what about the planets and moons of the solar system?
are they pulling away from each other?

if yes, what about on earth?
are terrestrial things pulling away from each other?
are people pulling away from each other?

is the space inside me going to expand
faster than the speed of light?

what will the likes of us

look like in 1,000,000 years?
