New Technique Matches Other Hubble Constant Measurements

A new technique for measuring the Hubble constant (Ho) provides additional evidence for the validity of RTB’s cosmic creation model. RTB’s model incorporates big bang cosmology and, as such, makes predictions about the expansion rate of the universe. The new technique analyzes the amount and type of galaxy clustering over a wide range of redshifts to determine distances. Coupled with the redshift measurements, this allows Ho to be determined. A California scientist applied the technique to observations taken with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and found the Ho measurement to be in perfect agreement with results from other methods. Such concordance indicates that big bang cosmology, and consequently RTB’s creation model, is a highly successful and accurate description of the universe.
