Oldest Supermassive Black Hole

January 18, 2021

This find shows that supermassive black holes did not form by slow accretion, but were caused by some intense early universe event.

13.4B light year Distant Galaxy

December 21, 2020

This galaxy is too old to fit in the Standard Model, which needs tons of time for cold Dark Matter to pool in the filaments.  It's discovery establishes that the Standard Model must be wrong about the time table of galactic formation.

Discrepancies in Hubble Constant

July 20, 2025

Hubble made his discoveries based upon a relative tiny portion of galaxies, most of them the ones visible across our local void.  Newer measurements, on different scales, dispute his numbers, suggesting the Hubble Constant may just be a Hubble Average.

Frame-dragging Shown in Binary System.

July 20, 2025

In case you thought frame dragging was just a wacky theoretical side-effect of GR, it has been demonstrated both with other star systems, and with satellites around the Earth.

Dust ring in Venus' orbit.

April 7, 2021

Like Jupiter's famous band of asteroids, the Trojans, each planet has a resonance ring of pre-planetary material following in the same orbit.  Our hypothesis is that the planets each carve out a stream of moving spacetime in that orbit, and the other material rides along on that stream.  Orbit is a ride around the sun on that stream.

Radio bubbles discovered north and south of Sagittarius A*

January 6, 2021

Radio bubbles north and south of the Milky Way's central supermassive black hole may illustrate the extended shape of spacetime bubbles.

Hubble Constant inconsistent across distances

May 18, 2021

Type 1a Supernovae give different results for the Hubble 'Constant' at various distances, according to Astrophysical Journal article.

Early galaxy forces reconsideration of Standard Model

February 12, 2021

A massive stellar bulge in a regularly rotating galaxy 1.2 billion years after the Big Bang


Too early galaxy with coherent spiral shape.

July 20, 2025

12.3 billion year old galaxy already shows coherent spiral and modern rotation curves.

Movement of large structures confounds Copernican assumptions.

July 20, 2025

Enormous galactic walls and super-structures move together as one coherent unit, defying the Standard Model.

Galaxy found 'without Dark Matter'

June 17, 2021

Galaxy confirmed to show no signs of containing Dark Matter

Close Scrutiny Reveals Expansion Anisotropies

July 18, 2021

A more accurate isotropy test shows that some regions of the universe are growing faster than others.

Dark Energy in doubt

October 19, 2019

An Oxford scientist reviews the 1a supernova data, and finds that the claims for acceleration of expansion are in doubt.

The Local Void pushes us

July 22, 2019

Analysis of our Local Void shows that it is responsible for at least 40% of the movement of our Local Group.
