  • High Redshift Galaxies May be Clusters of Galaxies (2005) [Updated 1 decade ago]

    Astronomical observing techniques have much improved the last decade. Objects in the faraway universe are spotted at redshifts up to z=12. Within big bang cosmology no objects can be further away than 13.7 billion light-years. However, objects with a redshift of z=12 rather may be at a distance of 140 billion light-years with tired light redshift instead of expansion redshift. Big bang astronomers mark certain objects in their early big bang universe as galaxies. A substantial part of those "galaxies" may turn out to be clusters of galaxies in an infinite universe.

  • Is the Biggest Paradigm Shift in the History of Science at Hand? (2005) [Updated 6 years ago]
    by Eit Gaastra   read the paper:

    According to a growing number of scientists cosmology is at the end of an era. This era started 100 years ago with the publication of Albert Einstein's special theory of relativity and came to its height in the 1920s when the theory of relativity was used to develop the big bang model. However, at this moment there is a crisis within cosmology. More and more scientists openly doubt the big bang. There are alternatives for the theory of relativity as well as for the big bang model, but so far most scientists are scared to pass over Einstein.

  • An Astronomy Model within an Infinite Universe (2004) [Updated 6 years ago]
    by Eit Gaastra, Cynthia Kolb Whitney   read the paper:
    In a Universe infinite in space and time, Population II stars may blacken, cool down, assemble hydrogen, and ignite as Population I stars, which finally blacken too, assemble hydrogen, etc. In this way, stars with very big heavy-element cores may come to existence, which may explain the intrinsic (gravitational) redshift of white dwarfs as well as the intrinsic (gravitational) redshift of bright blue stars. When celestial objects (with heavy elements) become very big, the gravitational contraction may become so high that endothermic reactions start: elements may fuse into elements higher than iron while absorbing low temperature (CBR) radiation, which may explain pulsars. When celestial objects become extremely big, then a reaction may start that turns elements higher than iron into very small elements, mainly HII and electrons, which then may explain radio loud activity by AGNs. Shrunken remnants of old galaxies may become the nuclei of new galaxies as well as the nuclei of AGNs. The cause of solar system formation may by objects (future planets) that travel through interstellar space, attracted to stars.
