The interpretation of the cosmological redshift as a Doppler shift has led to the Big Bang paradigm, which has come to be guarded against refutation by fudge factors such as dark matter, cosmic inflation, and dark energy. Critically regarded, even classical mechanics and general relativity stand as falsified on the galactic scale, and the cosmological redshift appears to have been misunderstood. Since gravitation affects bodies similarly down to zero mass and subsequently also affects the vacuum, it is claimed that vacuum drains into potential wells and that this brings the vacuum to expand in intergalactic space together with any waves which traverse it. It is shown that the observed magnitude-redshift relation of type Ia supernovae agrees excellently with predictions based on such compensatory expansion within an infinite, sustainable universe. Their light curves and the relations between redshift, angular size, and surface brightness of distant galaxies are also called upon, and the status of inferred galaxy evolution is discussed. The CMBR is suggested to arise from energy lost and scattered by redshifting light. A full-fledged cosmology based on compensatory expansion and a well-founded theory of inertia and galactic dynamics remain yet to be elaborated. Some suggestions in this direction are made.
