The Misleading Acceleration of the Universe, the Galactic Potential Wells and the Duration of the Universal Expansion

Authors: Mario Everaldo de Souza

It is shown that galaxies close to galactic sheets are attracted towards them with an approximate Hooke’s law force. Thus, as they get closer to the sheets, the more their velocities increase, and the more the magnitude of their accelerations decrease. Therefore, the so-called acceleration of the Universe is completely misleading. It is concluded that galaxies are subject to potential wells close to voids walls. It is suggested that the Universe is a new kind of amorphous solid. For the first time it is estimated that the universal expansion is of the order of one trillion years.
