Its not just the redshift but the change in the redshift, you know
the inverse square law, 1/R^2. That produces a given power
density vs distance curve. So if the inverse square law is correct,
then 'standard candles' which are intrinsically the same brightness
anywhere in the universe, one here is the same stuff as one
ten billion LY away, then at a given distance, it should glow at a
given luminosity. The farthest ones away have more power showing
than would be given by our inverse square buddy. So the conclusion
is a long time ago in a galaxy far away, (literally in this case!)
they were brighter than they would have been if the expansion was
constant. So they say, therefore, things sped up at about the
6 billion year lifetime of our universe which freaked the
cosmologists totally, they were not prepared for such a phenomena.
Thats why they are invoking mysterious new forces to account for it.
But the Heim theory ALREADY postulates two new forces so they
may be related. Of course its all theory so there will always
be dissenters which is a good thing in science, especially since
statistically speaking, any new theory has a pretty large probability
of being wrong, just by the numbers: Lots more theories proven
wrong than right so we have to await the exerimentalists results.
News at eleven.
