Actually, these numbers are wrong, since scientists are only aware of the atoms and molecules they canmeasure, and these are few and far between at higher altitudes. But they don't just spread out and existin nothingness. The ether makes up the rest of the density. According to Einstein, gravity accelerates allobjects toward earth at the same rate, regardless of the size of the object. Of course, bouyancy plays a part. Just as objects that will not float in air will float in water, the atoms and molecules, if hot enough,will be light enough to float in the ether. Nothing will float in a vacuum within a gravitational field,unless there is something heavier directly below it. Now, let's look at the reasons scientists mistakenly believe that objects are moving apart in space andspace itself is expanding.1.Stars are creating solar winds faster than gravity is creating new stars. This continually adds tothe ether, both within the solar systems and also within interstellar space.2.A denser ether causes light from distant objects to dim slightly. This makes them appear moredistant.3.The ratio of stars burning compared to stars being created is ever increasing, due partly to theextreme lifetime of the stars. And when stars do die, they add to the ether even faster. This makes therate of expansion seem to increase.4.The ether itself does not condense back into star building material. The supply of hydrogen andhelium is being depleted. Only the final death of stars replenishes this supply, but never to previouslevels. The expansion of space, according to the Hubble Constant, is 70 km/s over a distance of 3,260,000 light years (
30,841,981,332,200,000,000 km). This amounts to an increase of about .000,000,000,000,000,226,9 % per second.(100% over 13.975 billion years).
5. Scientists believe that objects 13.5 billion light years away are travelling away from us at 10times the speed of light. This means an object 3,260,000 light years away would be moving at 1/414the speed of light (724 kms.).
This amounts to an increase in distance of only about .000,000,000,000,002,193 % per second.(933.64% over 13.5 billion years.)The solar winds consist of .01% of the sun's mass each year. The sun's mass is 98% of the mass for the entire solar system. This amounts to .000,000,000,317% of the mass of the solar system each second. Do scientists just believe that all of these electrons and protons simply evaporate? As the solar system gets foggy, the distance objects getdimmer. The sun, over a period of 100 years would appear to be 6.4 miles farther away.Scientists believe that the galaxies are moving apart faster than space is expanding.However the expansion of space is exactly that required to account for the suspected sizeof the visible universe(13.975 billion light years). The universe should be almost 10times larger based on the suspected speed of the galaxies.Even the slower speed, the expansion of space, creates significant problems with thespeed of light. Objects at the edge, traveling at the speed of light, would emit light thatwould be stationary, relative to us, as the light emitting objects move away from the photons and us at the speed of light. I know Einstein said that light would travel awayfrom these objects at the speed of light and would also approach us at the speed of light.That could only happen if the medium of space was stationary. It was Einstein's belief when he first developed the theory of relativity that the universe was not expanding.
