What if the speed of light increases proportionately to the expansion of space? Is it possible that light traveling in the medium of space gets to travel faster if the medium is expanding? An analogy is to put a drop of floating dye into water. If you drag your finger across the drop it stretches across the water where your finger travels. The dye would be light and your finger would be the simulation of the expansion of space. Is there anyway that this could be possible?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

Well that depends as researchers say that the the universes expansion is accelerating because of dark energy that increases spaces at various points, it is hard to determine what the acceleration rate is but it is noted in 1998 by researchers of the acceleration.
