Hubble radius




The distance from the observer at which the cosmological recession velocity of a galaxy would equal the speed of light – in mathematical terms, c/Ho, where c is the velocity of light and Ho is the Hubble constant. Roughly speaking, the Hubble radius is the radius of the observable universe, and is believed to between about 11 and 15 billion light-years.
