Universe may NOT be expanding, study suggests.

Hey guys, just saw this while I was on stumbleupon. Pretty wild, if you ask me.

o in an expanding Universe the most distant galaxies should have hundreds of times dimmer surface brightness than similar nearby galaxies, making them
actually undetectable with present-day telescopes.

But that is not what observations show, as demonstrated by this new study published in the International Journal of Modern Physics D.

So the most distant galaxies have a similar luminosity as galaxies that are closer to us. However, that is in direct contradiction to what the
expanding universe theory suggests should be the case.

I thought this was the most startling bit of the article

“It is amazing that the predictions of this simple formula are as good as the predictions of the expanding Universe theory, which include complex
corrections for hypothetical dark matter and dark energy,” said study co-author Dr Renato Falomo of the Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova,

This is pretty telling. Normally the correct answers are the most simple. And if you take into account the corrections they say they use to account
for dark matter and dark energy that whole formula may just be a convoluted explanation for what is actually happening. Though, they did say in the
end they aren’t ready to speculate on what actually causes the red shift in light from galaxies that appear to be moving away.
