  • B. But it would have to be very, very distant, like 10-12 billion light years, towards the very early stage of the Universe according to its age determined by the Hubble Constant (13.7 billion years). It is were evolved, and thus old, it would indicate the Universe is older than indicated by Hubble’s Constant.

    Such a finding might not destroy the Big Bang Theory, but merely destroy the estimates for the Hubble Constant, which has been changed much since it was first formulated… older and older.

    [BB theory predicts Red shift but these approaching galaxies show Blue shifts violating BB theory. One explanation could be that local movements are exempt from the BB theory, that is additional factor adding to the Red shift]
