William setin the link to https://www.yahoo.com/news/webb-telescope-spots-six-galaxies-192633089.html … and comments – so much for theory. We must change our assumptions or we will get nowhere.

The same story is at https://phys.org/news/2023-02-discovery-massive-early-galaxies-defies.html … six massive galaxies have been discovered in what is thought to be the early universe. Scientists expected only to find young, small, galaxies, but they have found galaxies as mature as our own galaxy. This is supposed to be the dawn of the universe where galaxies were first birthed – assuming the telescope is peering back in time to a point just 500 to 800 million years after the Big Bang.

NASAs James Webb Space Telescope is already producting surprises for cosmologists, as forecast by Wal Thornhill. The point these six galaxies frequent if thought to be close to the Big Bang event. The space telescope was billed as allowing astronomers to peer back 13.5 billion years, near to the beginning of the universe. Already, it would seem, Big Bang is looking a bit awry.

Meanwhile, Planet 9 is back in the news. At https://phys.org/news/2023-02-planet-unconventional-approach.html … in search of Planet 9 – an uncoventional approach. Try and find its satellites by tidal heating signatures.
