Where Science and Faith Converge

Probe of Early Stars

Astronomers’ more-detailed measurements of early starlight provide additional tools to test—and evidence for—RTB’s cosmic creation model. Roughly a year ago, astronomers reported evidence that they were seeing the light from the first generation of stars produced in the universe. Longer observations over a wider area, coupled with more thorough foreground subtraction, confirm the previous results. These observations represent starlight emitted when the universe was less than one billion years old and confirm essential details of big bang cosmology. RTB scholars expect that, as scientists refine the technique, more demanding tests will continue to affirm the validity of big bang cosmology and RTB’s cosmic creation model.
