The new study—by a group at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand—finds the fit of Type Ia supernovae to a model universe with no dark energy to be very slightly better than the fit to the standard dark energy model.
Dark energy is usually assumed to form roughly 70% of the present material content of the Universe.
THE RAC is urging drivers to give roadside breakdowns a wide berth following a terrifying crash on the M4 that saw a car smash into one of their vans while their mechanic was changing a wheel for a stranded driver.

The previous debate pitted the standard Lambda Cold Dark Matter (ΛCDM) cosmology against an empty universe whose expansion neither accelerates nor decelerates.
Both of these models though assume a simplified 100 year old cosmic expansion law—Friedmann's equation.
In the Timescape model this is not a real effect, however, and the curve is flatter than the ΛCDM case.

Although injured, the driver of the car managed to clamber out of the wreckage.
Shocked, Andrew went to help the unconscious RAC member and called the emergency services.
The crash near junction 15 for East Swindon/Marlborough on Thursday resulted in the westbound carriageway being closed for an hour and-a-half as police, fire crews and paramedics dealt with the aftermath. One minute I was changing the customer’s front wheel the next I heard an almighty crunch and looked up to see my van rolling over towards us and the car spinning into the live lane.” The RAC said Andrew had parked his marked vehicle as he was trained – on the hard shoulder, some distance from the broken down and with its lights and beacons flashing.
He had also asked the member to stand back on the grass verge.
The timescape cosmology was found to give a slightly better fit to the largest supernova data catalogue than the ΛCDM cosmology.
