"The scientists carefully compared the size and brightness of about a thousand nearby and extremely distant galaxies. They chose the most luminous spiral galaxies for comparisons, matching the average
luminosity of the near and far samples.
Contrary to the prediction of the Big Bang theory, they found that the surface brightnesses of the near and far galaxies are identical.
These results are consistent with what would be expected from ordinary geometry if the Universe was not expanding, and are in contradiction
with the drastic dimming of surface brightness predicted by the
expanding Universe hypothesis."
Something does not sound right here. I sought out some preprints
of papers below. It strikes me as unlikely that with thousands of
astronomers and astrophysicists that luminosity of galaxies was as
badly mis-measured as this claimed result reports. Also these results
are somewhat dated now with no follow on.
