An attempt to answer the question 'Can we observe galaxies that recede faster than light ?' led to a re-examination of the notions of time, distance, velocity and redshift as they occur in newtonian physics, special relativity, general relativity and cosmology. A number of misconceptions were uncovered. It was found that, once freed of special relativity preconceptions, the above question is easily and unequivocally answered 
Conceptual Problems of the Standard Cosmological Model
The physics of the expansion of the universe is still a poorly studied subject of the standard cosmological model. This because the concept of expanding space can not be tested in the laboratory andExpand
Some Outstanding Problems of Cosmological Physics
We conclude with short descriptions of a few important problems of cosmological physics. These tie together several topics from previous chapters. We discuss (1) Homogeneity scale and superlargeExpand
Philosophy of Space and Expanding Universe in G. J. Whitrow
One of the few authors to have explicitly connected the physical issue of the expansion of the universe with the philosophical topic of the metaphysical status of space is Gerald James Whitrow. ThisExpand
