I was wondering. Is it possible to see back into the past?
I was debating with a friend, about this. And I believe that, it is possible, if you, eg. Travel 3.5 billion light years away from earth in an instant, and if you are able to locate the earth, from where you are, that if you take a REALLY powerful pair of binoculars, and look back at the earth, then you would be able see back into time by 3.5 billion years.
Or, do you just see the present? I would be able to see my house and school, and so on?
I mean, the light reflected, does not come any closer/faster to you, just because you zoom in, right? It would take 3.5 billion years for you to be able to see, the present?
Or am I completely wrong?
