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.
