Examples

  • So you don’t think there is any possibility that radiation can have the effect of curving space, as recorded by light, such as redshifting it, without having equal effect on the position of emitting objects?

  • Once the initial discovery was made, followup observations using the Keck 10-m telescope in Hawaii, the Magellan telescope in Chile, and the MMT telescope in Arizona revealed the redshifting of the light due to the expansion of the Universe to be about 80%, meaning that the star is very far away, and thus very old.

  • For looking back billions of years, redshifting is a better measurement.

  • Astronomers looking to pinpoint when the reionozation of the Universe took place have found some of the earliest galaxies about 800 million years after the Big Bang. 22 early galaxies were found using a method that looks for far-away redshifting sources that disappear or "drop-out" at a specific wavelength.

  • One is natural redshifting due to the expansion of the universe.

    Putting the Heat in the Hot Big Bang

  • God, rapidly redshifting, hurriedly formed man from the dust of single-celled organisms, called him Adam, and caused him to dwell in the Garden of Eden, to classify the beasts according to kingdom, phylum and species.

    UNCLE

  • It would simply cause space to effectively expand, thus redshifting light crossing it, as a local, but extremely minute effect that would only be apparent at great distances.

    A Dark, Misleading Force

  • Now for a light ray that comes close to a gravitating body the calculations are a bit complicated, but we can understand something of the net redshifting and blue shifting of light.

  • It would simply cause space to effectively expand, thus redshifting light crossing it, as a local, but extremely minute effect that would only be apparent at great distances.

    A Dark, Misleading Force

  • If you are in this volume, freely falling with this reference frame, you would then witness a redshifting of light from other falling sources along the radial direction.
