Four different sets of observations (positions of blue-shifted light relative to matter-dense regions) independently confirm that dark energy plays a major role in governing the expansion dynamics of the universe. These confirmations strengthen the evidence for dark energy’s pervasive influence and for its extreme fine-tuning.
