The μ–z diagram (Figure 1) plots the observed internal proper motion μ versus redshift z for 32 extragalactic radio sources associated with active galactic nuclei. The observed points fall below an upper bound which decreases with redshift; there is a statistically significant anticorrelation between redshift and internal proper motion.
