Measurements of the Local Group of galaxies provide further confirmation of RTB’s cosmic creation model. Observations of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a nearby dwarf galaxy, over a long period of time enabled scientists to better constrain the motion of the LMC in the Local Group. Since the Milky Way Galaxy (MWG) provides the dominant gravitational influence on the LMC, the team of astronomers also calculated the mass of the MWG. The mass obtained compares favorably with theoretical calculations and previous mass measurements. In a good model, future measurements confirm theoretical predictions and previous measurements of various parameters. This measurement confirms theoretical predictions of RTB’s cosmic creation model.
