# Superluminal recession velocities

@article{Davis2001SuperluminalRV, title={Superluminal recession velocities}, author={Tamara M. Davis and C. Lineweaver}, journal={arXiv: Astrophysics}, year={2001}, volume={555}, pages={348-351} }

Hubble’s Law, v=HD (recession velocity is proportional to distance), is a theoretical result derived from the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric. v=HD applies at least as far as the particle horizon and in principle for all distances. Thus galaxies with distances greater than D=c/H are receding from us with velocities greater than the speed of light and superluminal recession is a fundamental part of the general relativistic description of the expanding universe. This apparent contradiction of…
