The speed of expansion

Aug 24, 2020
We know that the outer reaches of the universe are expanding faster than closer regions in the Cosmos. But my question is how fast? If I remember correctly this expansion in the outer regions is faster than the speed of light based on studies of galaxys out there. Again, how much faster than light? Do we have any firm or theoretical numbers on this?

According to the 'Space Balls' there are three speeds:
1) light speed
2) rediculous speed
3) ludicrous speed.

I am not familiar with the latest technological advancements on the planet 'space Ball', but is this outer expansion rediculous or ludicrous speed? Orcould it be proposterous speed that has not been perfected yet? Mabey we will find out when the sequel arrives.
