From Xelasnave.1947 Post 20 I do not know about the above, but am certain that Quasars were a killing blow due to the lack of any less than billions of light years from Earth. Steady State claimed that the major features of the universe were essentially the same with respect to both time & space. Quasars were both very distant & features of the early universe. There are few (if any) recent quasars. Steady State assumes a universe whose major features do not vary with respect to either time or space.
