Supernovae Measure Expansion

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

A team of astronomers announced the discovery of a star that will enable them to confirm to a greater degree the most outstanding example of supernatural cosmic design. This star is a type Ia supernova that is more distant than any other yet discovered. Measurements already performed by the team will enable them to accurately define the cosmic mass density and the dark energy density, the two cosmic parameters for which astronomers see the greatest evidence for supernatural design. Their results (to be published shortly) will provide more reasons to believe in the God of the Bible.
