To anyone truly interested in this subject, read “The Elegant Universe”. You can thank me later. It is a very readable treatise on physics from Newtonian to relativity to quantum mechanics (the two aforementioned be apparently mutually exclusive) to string theory.

The expansion of the fabric of space is accelerating from
an unknown force (dark energy). Maybe the expansion is
not only at cosmological distances but also locally in our
own galaxy and maybe even the space in our solar system.

Thanks for posting the article.

Can they make predictions based on this theory?

Physicist, I said long ago relativity is something I've never studied (quantum gas-phase inelastic neutral atomic / molecular scattering theory).
Any comments on the cosmological "potential well" idea ??

I can think of dozens of questions I would like to ask that simply cannot be asked because the axioms that scientists use.
If we were near the center of the universe, what kind of effects would that have on time?
What about blue and red shift?
Could this have anything to do with the Pioneer effect?
Nonsense! Everybody knows the Universe has no center!

Ah yes, consensus must not be questioned.
(Thanks for the ping!)

Bbbbut, that agrees with God, so it’s unscientific....

(Psalm 78:35 And they remembered that God was their ROCK, And the Most High God their Redeemer.)
this is TOWARD The Sun, from outbound craft. I think the phrasing is confusing some people.
...an apparent anomalous, constant, acceleration acting on the spacecraft with a magnitude ~8.5Ã10â8 cm/s2 , directed towards the Sun....
It is a deceleration, since the craft are moving away from the sun. It looks to me like someone has this backwards. (like all the creationist cosmologists)
