Einstein and Red Shift, some pulsar pulsing goings on, and blinking black holes

At http://phys.org/print311929448.html … we are told Einstein didn't accept the expanding universe theory for a long time but later found it was a way to ease problems he had with gravity, and eventually accepted it as a means of closing down that problem. That is, reading between the lines – not always a good idea.

At http://phys.org/print311964428.html … NASAs Chandra X-ray Observatory has seen a fast moving pulsar escaping from what is thought to be a supernovae remnant while spewing out a jet of high energy particles.

At http://phys.org/print311926887.html … supercomputers recreate X-rays emitted from the vicinity of a black hole – just outside the event horizon (the cusp of the lisp, or the rim of the gigantic mouth sucking monster). We are told that knowledge about black holes 'has grown considerably in recent years' while ignoring the fact that they are still an unseen phenomena, a beast of the drawing board. Super computers have been fed data to simulate what is thought is going on – warped space time, for example, gas pressure, ionising radiation, megnetic plasma etc.

At http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2014/02/19/explanetary-system-exhibiting-… … which is taken from a paper at http://arxiv.org/abs/1305.6768 – but see also https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/prp-special-issue/ …and concerns planet systems discovered by the Kepler Space Mission. Most seem to have two planets … but three planet systems are now being found. What are the implications?
