No expansion of space, per se? Sure, all galaxy groups appear to be traveling away from ours. But does that mean the universe is inexplicably expanding, like a loaf of raisin bread, as some have likened it? I think not exactly. I think it is expanding, in that all objects appear to be moving away from each other, leaving ever greater space between them. But pardon me if I hesitate to subscribe to the widely-accepted hypothesis that "actual space" is expanding like a loaf of raisin bread. Here is my simpler explanation: The origin point of the big bang is the point from which all things have been driven in all directions for some 14 billion odd years. (Discounting incidental cross-vectoral forces.) So even objects relatively close to our galaxy group, having been blown away from that origin at very, very, very nearly the same vector as ours, are continuing to separate away from us exponentially, as that ever-so-slight vector differential evolves into an ever greater physical separation. I really hope I'm just naive about this. I'd hate to think the whole of astrophysics has been derailed on a false notion. Please set me straight.
