New Galaxy Redshift Distance Record (z=11) Seriously Threatens Big Bang models

A new record distance to a huge galaxy named GN-z11 has been observed and measured. It is dramatically farther than the previous distance holder. The constantly amazing Hubble Space telescope measured its distance spectroscopically at a Spectral line Redshift of … Continue reading

Gigantic Voids are Expanding and Shrinking

Very few researchers are studying our Universe’s largest structures, but here’s a nice analysis of Voids,  some of the largest structures “we’ve” found so far. Voids are nearly spherical regions of our universe with few galaxies. They can be described … Continue reading

Is the search for “Dark Matter” over ? Gigantic amounts of missing matter found hiding as faint Red Dwarf stars.

Yes. The search for “Dark Matter” is over. Its been found thanks to the Dokkum and Conroy team. We can all go celebrate, and then get back to work. And it was staring us right in the face all along; … Continue reading

Accelerating Universe ? — Not so Fast*

Maybe the rush to embrace an Accelerating Universe and Dark Energy was a bit too hasty. New analysis shows that the rulers used to measure Supernova 1A brightness curves were unknowingly measuring two different types of Supernova 1As (1) with … Continue reading

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

The Universe’s children: Born as lively teenagers and older than their parents!

(c) Copyright 2013 Louis MarmetThe WMAP estimate of the age of the Universe, 13.77 ± 0.06 Gyr (billion years), is challenged once again by two recent publications. The study of a nearby star shows that it is older than the … Continue reading

Key Cosmology Experiments: Original Papers-Full Text. Part 1

One hundred years ago this Spring, the first article on galaxy Spectral-line Redshifts was published by Vesto Slipher which dramatically changed cosmology. However, few have ever read this original paper, or the several other articles and books considered cosmology landmarks … Continue reading

Oldest Spiral galaxy BX442 supports Hubble’s belief: Redshift does not mean expansion

(c) Copyright 2012 Louis Marmet A team of astronomers have reported the discovery of the oldest spiral galaxy known so far. What makes this discovery interesting is that this grand-design spiral galaxy already existed 3 billion years after the Big … Continue reading

Dark Matter Missing in Milky Way and Nearby Galaxies – after thorough searches

Gigantic pillars of Big Bang are creaking and starting to collapse like colossal dominoes. These are tumultuous times in Cosmology. Recently I described how the “The voice you hear getting louder is Brünnhilde practicing Götterdämmerung” in describing the fruitless and … Continue reading
