We can't see any further as the light hasn't reached us yet.
However, seeing as the observable universe is isotropic and homogeneous, we can assume that anything beyond the observable universe is pretty much more of the same tongue.gif

Plus also, the rate of the expansion of the universe is closing in on, or past, the speed of light now, so pretty much anything beyond what we can see now we'll never see unless we develop FTL technology. :/

Definitely past. The diameter of the observable universe is 93 billion light years. Crazy.

So more pretty auroras and quasars and pulsars and super nova and brilliant nebulae and galaxies munching galaxies and mystical shaped star alignments with beautiful mythic names? thinking.gif

Yay! More of the same! thumb.gif

As mentioned, this is pretty cool for a few reasons. First, it allows us to create a system using what we think we know about the universe and then compare it to what we can observe in actuality. If they are the same, if means we have a pretty good model already. Also, we can use it to predict things we haven't observed (but are capable of observing) and then compare the model's prediction to observation, again testing our current models for accuracy. Second, assuming we have no reason from point one to doubt our models, it will let us study areas outside of our observable universe, albeit only theoretically.
