Abstract
The conventional argument holds that the night sky is dark because the universe is expanding and the lifespan of stars is limited. Expansion weakens the light and star deaths reduce the number of light sources. Ultimately there will be no new formation of stars. However, the conventional resolution of Olbers’ Paradox is no longer tenable. It turns out that the Universe is not expanding, the Universe is not evolving, and there is no restriction on the number of stars — the process of star formation is perpetual. With the recent publication of two revolutionary papers, one describing a simple cosmic redshift mech-anism wherein wavelength elongation occurs in both expanding space and contracting space and the other detailing the resolution of what is undisputedly the most intractable anomaly in astronomy and astrophysics, the true nature of the Universe has been revealed —our world is a steady state cellular cosmos. The real Universe does not expand; furthermore, the numbers of light sources are infinite and their average spacing density never changes (since they are perpetually being replaced). Clearly, neither of the two conventional arguments will work. The following is a new two-part resolution of the night-sky-darkness question —a natural resolution that exploits the new cosmic redshift mechanism, known as the velocity-differential shift, and a photon extinction-probability mechanism.
