comment Expansion of the Universe regarding Time and lightspeed
Thanks! When you wrote that all the galaxies are roughly the same age, a lot of what I was thinking about wrong came into light (no pun intented lol). Then an image of galaxies forming at the same time across the universe became more clear in my mind, and it helped (along with user45784's answer) to piece together a better understanding.

Thanks! Both your answer and John's helped me piece together what I was thinking about wrong. It sucks that I can't mark both answers.

comment Would approaching a distant star at near the speed of light unfold its entire history in "fast-forward"?
Thanks! but regarding the last 2 paragraphs: the star sees the spaceship's time running slowly because the spaceship almost catches up with its own light, but the spaceship has been traveling for over a million years (assuming the star is a million lightyears away), has it not? That's the part that gets me about relativity... why is the space between the spaceship and the star contracting? is it the gravity that the spaceship suddenly has at these high speeds which causes the space to contract?
