Formula:Explanation of Olbers' Paradox

Introduction to Olbers' Paradox

Olbers' Paradox is a puzzle which questions why the night sky is dark if there are an infinite number of stars present in the universe. The paradox is resolved by realizing that the finite speed of light and the expansion of the universe result in distant starlight not yet reaching us. As a result, the night sky appears dark to the human eye.
