A New Interpretation of Cosmological Redshifts: Variable Light Velocity

  • Eugene I. Shtyrkov


At present there are two alternative points of view to explain non-intrinsic redshifts in galaxy spectra which were discovered experimentally early in our century. One of them is based on the assumption of the Doppler effect and results in the Big Bang model of the Universe. The alternative approach is the notion of a step-by-step energy loss by a photon while it is traveling through space from a galaxy to a terrestrial observer (tired-light model). Though differing in essence, both assume that astronomical spectral experiments provide us with information about the frequency of the light being examined.
