Discovery of Distant Type Ia supernovae

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Article in The Astrophysical Journal announces the discovery of two distant type Ia supernovae in the Hubble Deep Field North at redshifts z = 0.47 and 0.95. The resulting distances strengthen the evidence that we live in a big bang universe where the expansion velocity is governed by two different density parameters each of which represent the greatest evidence scientists possess for supernatural design.
