If all matter and energy originated at a singularity at the Big Bang, wouldn't
the matter have had to expand at a speed faster than light at some point in past
in order to out run all the light created at the Big Bang. Otherwise the night
sky would be filled with light. And if space is spherical, but infinite, why
don't we get the night sky lit up from light coming around the other way? I
believe this has been called something like Urick's conjecture, but my
misspelling of it prevents me from looking it up.
