“Testing the standard model of cosmology is a really challenging problem that requires the best-ever measurements of the Hubble Constant," Dom Pesce, a researcher at the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard and Smithsonian and lead author on the new paper, said in a statement.
"The discrepancy between the predicted and measured values of the Hubble Constant points to one of the most fundamental problems in all of physics, so we would like to have multiple, independent measurements that corroborate the problem and test the model," Pesce said. "Our method is geometric and completely independent of all others, and it reinforces the discrepancy."
"There has been debate over whether this problem lies in the model itself or in the measurements used to test it," Braatz added. "Our work uses a distance measurement technique completely independent of all others, and we reinforce the disparity between measured and predicted values. It is likely that the basic cosmological model involved in the predictions is the problem."

Which predictions would that be? Which EU predictions concern the rate of expansion of the Universe?
In which more than not the electric universe predictions are more accurate.
That's part of the problem, actually. This experiment increases the discrepancy.
So the logical first step might be to compare that with those nice background radiation and those temperature maps we made.
However, predictions of the Hubble Constant from the standard cosmological model when applied to measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) -- the leftover radiation from the Big Bang -- produce a value of 67.4, a significant and troubling difference.
"Our measurement of the Hubble Constant is very close to other recent measurements, and statistically very different from the predictions based on the CMB and the standard cosmological model. All indications are that the standard model needs revision," said Braatz.

Have you heard of the Star that is older than the Universe?

Star “HD 140283” or Methuselah star. Hmmm, curious...
I looked for an electric universe "theory" and the underlying mathematical model but never found it. All I ever found was people talking BS without any mathematical model.

for me the electric universe theory and part of the hollow Earth theory line up better mathematically.
Not that much surprises me any more but I'll be surprised if you get a good answer to that question!
