Recent investigations on clusters of nebulae with the 18-inch Schmidt telescope on Palomar Mountain suggest that many large clusters of nebulae such as the Coma cluster represent statistically stationary configurations . Calculations show that, if one starts from originally random distributions of nebulae, the formation of stationary large clusters requires periods of time exceeding 10^18 years . Consequently, if the process of clustering of nebulae has actually reached a stationary state, it follows that the short-time scale demanded by the hypothesis of an expanding universe is untenable.
