Ran across this article that stretches the imagination.
First, it strains the mind to think that we are able to see an event that happened 9 billion years ago. Secondly, it begs the larger question: what does it look like now in that space? A lot could happen in 9 billion years.
The earth is estimated to be less than 5 billions years old. In 5 to 7 billion years more, the sun and earth will end... so no one... ever... will see what that space, where the supernova was, looks like today from our vantage. Of course, in 5 to 7 billion years everything will be different and in a different place.
Just go back to thinking about politics. It's a lot simpler.
