From Milton Runcie:

Re: Astronomers peer into primordial "fog" (Oct. 21): I'm fascinated to read 'how far back in time' can be observed with today's telescopes. It's amazing we can 'see' what appears to have been evolving in the early universe about 13 billion years ago. What beats me is how we (today's observers) managed to get 'out here', on our observation platform (the earth) long before the light arrived from (ostensibly) the same source as we did... !!! Are we time-travellers? Were we travelling faster than light to get here... ??? Or is the king wearing clothes, after all... ???
