Local Dwarf Galaxies Found

Astronomers’ recent discovery of “missing” dwarf galaxies provides additional evidence for the validity of RTB’s cosmic creation model. Big bang cosmology, which RTB’s model incorporates, predicts a large number of dwarf galaxies located around more-massive galaxies like the Milky Way Galaxy. However, observations had failed to detect any significant number—until recently. Using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, scientists found seven of the dwarf galaxies in a small section of the sky, implying the existence of dozens more in other regions of the sky. These results help resolve the discrepancy between theory and observations and place RTB’s cosmic creation model on firmer scientific ground.
