Question

Dan Wheeler asked:

Hello Chris

 

I am a big fan of your show.

 

I now understand the basic concept (thanks to your show) how the universe is expanding. Not the cause so much as it is space itself expanding. My question is; Even though the Solor System is very small in scale to the universe at large. Shouldn't the space between say the Sun and the Earth be expanding as well.

 

Thank You
