It is said that the Hubble Telescope can see farther into space than any telescope on earth. And that seeing deep into space is actually seeing the past, because the light hitting the telescope is not happening "now’ but is light that left whatever star however many years ago.
But my question is this, if the Hubble can see deeper than the most powerful telescope on earth, isn’t it really seeing the past AND the future (in a sense). Because the light it is seeing hasn’t hit earth yet (or the range of an earth boud telescope yet)…but presumably it would eventually hit earth when the light gets closer.
Am I way off or not understanding the concept right?
