The actual world model, the “Standard Model of Cosmology” (SMC), which
dates back to the 1950s, no longer corresponds to the latest state of knowledge
on the cosmos. By way of example, the assumption made in the SMC that the
expansion of the cosmos is continually being reduced due to the effect of the
gravitation exerted on all the matter in the universe is now contradicted by
recent measurements. The reason for the expansion of cosmic space in accordance
with Hubble’s Law is not physically explained by the SMC but merely stated as a
fact. Another example is provided by the “dark phenomena”, which make up by far
the greatest part of the energy of the cosmos, and exert a dominant influence
on its behaviour. In spite of intensive research over the decades to provide
answers to these as well as other open issues in cosmology, no satisfactory and
plausible answers have hitherto been found. It is indeed time to propose an
alternative cosmological world model to the SMC in the light of the latest
insights on the universe.
