Relativity and Cosmology


Is the Brightness of Type Ia Supernovae, Compatible with Special Relativity?

Authors: Dino Bruniera

The observations show that the apparent brightness of type Ia supernovae is about 25% lower than that expected. Which would shows that the speed of expansion of the Universe is accelerating. But with this paper I will show that, instead, it shows that the formula is not correct, because it considers the cosmological redshift as a factor of expansion of space, while it is not. And since the cosmological redshift is considered as the factor of expansion of the Universe, to respect what say the Special Relativity, the demonstration that it cannot be, does not prove that the theory is not compatible with the apparent brightness of distant celestial objects?
