Dark Energy

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

The more astronomers observe the universe, the more they discover confirmations for the big bang. Astronomers have observed a predicted feature of dark energy, namely that it slows down the gravitational collapse of matter. This new observation establishes that astronomers are witnessing the dynamical effect of dark energy throughout all of cosmic history and, thus, significantly strengthens evidence for the big bang creation event.
