Distance Measurement Confirms Previous Measurements

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

 New distance measurements provide additional support for RTB’s cosmic creation model. Accurate measurements to distant objects comprise one vital component for understanding how the universe developed. Recent measurements of supernova 1987a currently provide the calibration of extragalactic distances. New direct measurements of groups of certain stars in more distant galaxies confirm the values based on the calibrated distance ladder, which gives astronomers greater confidence in the validity of all distance measurements. As additional data are gathered, the scientific basis for RTB’s cosmic creation model gains strength.
