Galaxies colliding, huge galaxies, captured in shots......does anyone see the elephant in the room, namely that these galaxies are moving faster than the speed of light given their size?
I take a still shot of the Saturn V taking off.....some would say its not moving, its a still shot. I take another still shot a few seconds later, some people could also say its not moving...….understood, given your rationale, yet the background has changed, suggesting the Saturn V rocket has moved......right?
The shots are taken over 10 years, suggesting that with each shot over a 10 year period the galaxies come together and do what they do.
So, assuming these galaxies, as so huge as they are in light years across, a best case scenario is that they are separated by 10 light years if the galaxies are moving at light speed, making the size of those galaxies only a few light years across, despite our own being.....12000 light years...(?)
…...yet despite that, with the second link I offered, the expansion of the universe suggests that galaxies are expanding outwards according to the metrics in the second link.....so at best one of those galaxies is expanding much faster than that at angle toward that other galaxy.
Agreed.The explanation of the shots is in the commentary of link.Yet, what is being suggested is that the gravitational pull exceeds light speed.
Contemporary science says the dynamic of expansion which has no effect on the size of galaxies is due to a material in between galaxies, as dark energy.
I am not sure if we both agree what the mechanics are at play in how these galaxies can come together in 10 years the way they do.
Can we suggest that if these galaxies are moving toward each other at light speed, then over 10 years the distance between before and after, initial shot and then "Armageddon" shot (as it is described) is 10 light years, the distance presumably between these galaxies?
How do they know they're "merging" over a 10 year period of camera activity, our camera activity?
Quote, first link: "Seeing the pairs of merging galaxy nuclei associated with these huge black holes so close together was pretty amazing,"
The subtext of the images: "These images reveal the final stage of a union between pairs of galactic nuclei in the messy cores of colliding galaxies. Credit: NASA, ESA, and M. Koss (Eureka Scientific, Inc.) "
What "movement"? What do you see?
The movement I see is the movement they see, "movement" that is noticeable and to my thinking is, given the size of those merged galaxies, faster than light.
The "end of a few billion years" of "merging" is a statement based on the BBT and theorised age of the univsere.
The study is imperative to the time frame stated: They obtained the images by looking for visually obscured, active black holes, and going back through 10 years' worth of X-ray data from the Burst Alert Telescope (BAT).
