Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Re: Why Didn't Einstein FULLY Address Simultaneity-at-a-Distance?« on: 25/04/2021 15:53:05 »
This Veritassium video suggests that Einstein did address simultaneity at a distance, by saying it is impossible to measure, and defining the convention that the speed of light is identical in every direction.
At about the 15 minute point in the video, the author says that it's possible that in some directions, we're seeing extremely distant galaxies as they were in the distant past, whereas in other directions we're seeing extremely distant galaxies as they are now. It seems to me that that possibility can be discounted because of the fact that what we see in all directions is amazingly uniform, and that seems to contradict our understanding that the universe has greatly changed since the big bang.
