This is what I wrote in IUT: “By 1929, Edwin Hubble discovered enough galaxies to establish that the degree of redshift also was a rough inverse function of their luminosity, which is a measure of their distance… His greatest mistake was to promote Slipher’s speculation that this cosmological redshift always was due to the Doppler Effect. The title of his famous 1929 introductory paper says it all: “A relation between distance and radial velocity among extra-galactic nebulae.””
In other words, he initially assumed the cosmological redshift and the Doppler Effect were one and the same. But the Doppler Effect only occurs in a medium. Einstein had removed that possibility by his temporary rejection of aether. A single particle could not have such an effect. Nonetheless, regressive physicists and cosmogonists accepted Einstein’s eight ad hocs.Both BBT and SST assumed that light was a particle instead of what it really is: a wave in a sea of particles.

Still more light found at the “end of the universe”.... The observable “end of the universe” is the farthest we can see with our present telescopes, with the Hubble Space Telescope the current far-out leader. In “Infinite Universe Theory” I included this photo, pointing out that the spiral galaxies at a distance of 13.2 billion light years were no different than our own Milky Way, which is 13.7 billion years old:

Of course, the Big Bang Theory claims that we should see younger and younger objects the farther we look out into space:

So far, there is no evidence to support that conjecture. Instead, the presence of the “elderly galaxies” in IUT Figure 9 above falsifies the theory. Now, Borlaff and others have done a computer analysis of the Hubble photos, coming up with this:
“The new version of Hubble's deep image. In dark grey is the new light that has been found around the galaxies in this field. That light corresponds to the brightness of more than 100 billion suns. Credit: A. S. Borlaff and others, 2019.” (Courtesy Mike Wall, Space.com).
Once again, it looks like there is more to the universe than previously recognized. In Infinite Universe Theory (p. 289), I predicted that “Improvements in instrumentation soon will result in the discovery of cosmological objects older than 13.8 billion years.” That is the currently accepted “age of the universe.” IUT Figure 7 will be severely tested when the Webb telescope replaces the Hubble after March 2021. Will that put the kibosh on the BBT? Unlikely. Cosmogonists no doubt will invent some new ad hocs to rescue the theory one more time. Readers might remember that my prediction is that the BBT will not be discarded until 2050.
