While some atheists and young-earth creationists cling to big bang skepticism, the model continues to pass every test. Two astronomers have developed another confirmation of the biblically predicted big bang creation model. A big bang universe should manifest a relatively smooth continuum of dense star clusters ranging in size from the smallest globular clusters to the largest dwarf galaxies. However, for several decades astronomers have noted a gap between the largest globular clusters and the smallest dwarf galaxies. The two researchers report that their observations of the supergiant galaxy NGC 5128 now fills that gap. Orbiting about NGC 5128 are star clusters with masses in between that of the largest previously observed globular cluster and the smallest previously observed dwarf galaxies. Thus, the big bang creation model has passed yet another test.
