Stunning Finding Supports Static Universe: 11 billion years ago we had same Ratio of Old (red) to New (blue) Galaxies

A research team led by Bomee Lee of University of Massachusetts reported that ~11 billion years ago large galaxies had the same ratio of young (blue) to old (red) galaxies. Galaxies can be objectively divided into two types: Young and … Continue reading
