    The observable universe is approximately 5.4*10^23 miles in diameter.

    Crossing the whole universe , by stretching its own diameter in just half a second, requires a speed close to 10^24 mph

    This question is not well defined. Half a second relative to what frame of reference? Earth's frame? Your frame? The distant places frame? Also, since we are discussing a faster than light speed, there is no way make the question well defined. Faster than light is impossible. It causes problems when you try to actually deal with it.

    The universe has no finite dimensions therefore the speed of going from infinity to infinity has no meaning.

    As for work, Ill show you mine if you will show me yours.
