That's 18 years old. One feels of it was significant, it would have had more acceptance by now.

No I didn't. there's plenty of things I haven't watched that I can tell aren't worth watching.

The guy in the video, Halton Arp, was a proponent of the theory that redshifts of distant galaxies and especially quasars were due to some intrinsic property (gravity was a candidate) rather than motion away from us. He was once a proponent of periodicity (aka quantization) of redshifts, the notion that redshifts took on preferred multiples of a certain number. He later stated that modern surveys like the Sloan Digital Sky Survey showed no evidence for this.

His other pet theory was that quasars were not distant as their redshifts seemed to indicate, but were expelled from nearby galaxies, because otherwise they were too bright for their redshift-calculated distance. It's become increasingly clear in recent years, however, that quasars are supermassive black holes in the center of distant galaxies. Their brightness is due to their jets being pointed toward Earth.

Halton Arp? He's a well known fringe crackpot, Electric Cosmos or something wacky like that.

'Was', not 'is' as he died in 2013 apparently. However there is a contact e-mail on his website... https://www.haltonarp.com...

Ah yes, I had forgotten he's gone. Too bad he went bonkers.
