    If traveling at light speed means that you go through time faster, how are we sure our distances are correct? If we are seeing quasars from 9 billion light years away, how are we sure they aren't further away than that because their light is traveling at light speed?

    It’s all about the observer. The faster you travel the slower time seems to you. Light itself has no observer perspective.
