Good times

Listening to a programme about astronomy I was fascinated by all the talk of dark energy and quarks etc. Especially interesting was that scientists can tell how far back towards the ‘big bang’ they are looking by measuring the intensity of red light. The further back in time they peer, the redder the light. Does this prove that mere nostalgia for yesteryear is rose tinted or just that they are using rose tinted telescopes? … Or perhaps that prostitution really is the oldest profession in the world?
